Who remembers Darfur?

What is Darfur again? The winner of the Apprentice? I just love Carrie Underwood. She’s like the next Trisha Yearwood.

Once again, Kofi is pleading with the world to help Darfur. Seems the rainy season is approaching and a “hunger gap” is on its way. How many Americans have any idea what a rainy season is, besides April-showers-bring-May-flowers? Rainy seasons are what happen to poor people. Poor people always have to endure water-induced tragedies.

What we need in Darfur is some good pictures of starving children. Then the money and aid would be flowing. The problem is, we can’t get there because of the terrain and now it’s the rainy season.

Here’s a poll for all of you: in your heart of hearts, does this Darfur mess really bother you? Is history repeating itself, and if so, do you care?

On the searching for villains front, Zarqawi is injured. Time for a lot of ra-ra-ra while more women are raped in Darfur.

  1. i don’t mean to be flippant, josh, but how do you sleep at night? you make me feel guilty for not knowing as much as i should. i have to digest this all now. if i can.

    as i was about to hit send my eye wandered over to the side of the page and i noticed that angelina jolie says she never slept with brad pitt. now that’s a story i can expound on at length. now i feel worse…

  2. I sleep beneath layers of irony. They keep me warm.
    So Angelina and Brad never did it? That’s a shame. But what about John Cougar’s new tour? Even Carrie Underwood interests me more than that. To have this Iraq and Darfur business side by side with American Idol is one thing, but to throw news of a Mellencamp tour in mix? What’s next, Corey Haim went to the supermarket?

  3. I think it is a complete disgrace that Americans are not aware of what is taking place in the world…I am guilty also. I am 33, a college graduate and consider myself to be fairly intelligent. I will admit, I am not and never have been a big history buff but I am ashamed to admit that I never knew a genocide took place 10 or so years ago in Africa…and I didn’t know that Darfur was part of Sudan…extremely SAD. Our media focusses on the celebrities in Hollywood, American Idol and usually the conflict in Iraq….we are ignorant people..myself, being one of them. I have since been self educating and reading about what is happening in Sudan and Chad and I am saddened beyond belief. I want to help….just don’t know how. Thank you for these blogs….we need to wake up America! Babies are dying…but we don’t care….out of site…out of mind.
