Darfur Report – Why should we care?

Writing about web page http://www.nytimes.com/packages/khtml/2005/05/31/opinion/20050531_DARFUR_AUDIOSS.html?th&emc=th

Just found a link to this on the BBC website – this is one of the best bits of journalism I've seen for a long time. It's a response, from a New York Times journalist in Darfur, to a letter he recieved asking why Americans should care about what's going on over there.

To quote the BBC - it's compelling.

Personally, I doubt my responce would have been printable. Instead, the journalist shows an incredible example of how to deal with that kind of attitude. I'm impressed.

  1. That's very compelling.

    I don't think I would have had quite the patience. :)

    Go on…write something else! Do the alphabet quiz or something! Please?
