"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

it's the best time of the year

It's the holiday season and I am taking a much-needed break from technology for the next couple of weeks. I'll be back in January with posts on the relationship between faith & aid workers, Enough's new naming-and-shaming conflict minerals report, southern Sudan's January 9 independence referendum, and, depending on how things play out, what may by then be a civil war in Cote d'Ivoire (and why decent people don't call it "Ivory Coast"). Warmest holiday wishes to you and yours, and thank-you for being part of the Texas in Africa community. See you in the new year!

Uh oh. I tend to go back and forth in usage of "Ivory Coast" and "Cote d'Ivoire," largely depending on audience. I just had an ISN Insights piece published in which I used the sinful version!
