FAO Quotables

"But being right, even morally right, isn't everything. It is also important to be competent, to be consistent, and to be knowledgeable. It's important for your soldiers and diplomats to speak the language of the people you want to influence. It's important to understand the ethnic and tribal divisions of the place you hope to assist."

Population Growth Challenges in Africa

Read this NYT article:

Nigeria Tested by Rapid Rise in Population

I don't know that I agree that population is the real problem...I think that if Nigeria used their oil revenues responsibly (instead of subsidizing and corruption) they could support and use (to their betterment) their burgeoning population.  
   Population growth in Africa is an area of much heated debate that I won't get into here for now.
