take what you can get
Hey, all, I'm sick as anything, so posting will be limited today. Here's some other stuff for your amusement/tears.
- Rwanda held elections earlier this week, and its parliament will become the first in the world to have women in the majority. It's unfortunate that those elections weren't really democratic, and that Rwanda is essentially an authoritarian police state controlled by an ethnic minority that doesn't tolerate dissent. But yay for some gender equality!
- The eastern Congo is on the brink of a major war, one that would be even worse than the annual rounds of fighting that have become routine.
- You can now buy "Believers for Barack" merchandise from the campaign.
