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


it's that time...

It's one of the best times of the year - the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament! Join the SWEDOW2012 group at ESPN.com to participate in the aid/development/foreign policy blogosphere's best bracket competition.

As usual, I have a host of fabulous SWEDOW* prizes for whoever wins the group, courtesy of fabulous aid, development, and security people sending me their junk all year long. Last year's winner somehow "forgot" to claim his prize, so that means you get twice the stuff this year. As you can see in the pic above, this year's prize pack includes a stuffed Ebola virus toy, dented ping-pong balls, and a super-classy "I (hammer/sickle) the 80's" t-shirt. Join today - brackets lock just before the tournament starts on Thursday.

*SWEDOW = Stuff WE DOn't Want = "Unnecessary or inappropriate items donated to a charity organization or relief effort."
