Africa's future

Two good editorials concerning the current situation in Africa and attempts to rectify the continent’s long-standing problems appeared in this mornings Commercial Appeal.

Clarence Page’s Are wealthy countries hurting Africa with increased aid? appeared as Give Africa a future, not just band aid in the CA. Page’s take on Africa is that the continent needs long term solutions and not just short term aid. He likens what is needed to the “teach a man to fish” homily.

Writing for the New York Times, Sarah Vowell’s A Pat on the Back appeared as For once, even Pat Robertson gets it in today’s CA. Vowell applauds and praises Robertson. Go read what Robertson, Bono and Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs have in common. Is this possibly a Sign of the Apocalypse?
