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."

ICow, Mangoes, Bombs in Somalia, and Caesar in the Congo

ICow, Mangoes, Bombs in Somalia, and Caesar in  the Congo

Four worthwhile articles to read.  The first one should be mandatory for every journalist and blogger that writes about Africa.  One may not agree with everything in her article but she makes a plethora of great points that should serve as foundation for further discussion.  My favorite is the last article.
