Libya and Baby Lisa–Questions on Current Events

With the news that came out of Libya today and the continuing  fascination with a missing baby in Kansas City I feel ok asking these questions….

About Libya….the rationale for the NATO action in Libya was to avert a genocide. I don’t doubt that. So the question is…why is a genocide in Saharan Africa worth some sort of military action and genocide in sub-Saharan Africa not worth it?  Or…why Libya and not Sudan or Congo?

Baby Lisa….if baby Lisa were black or Latino, would her being missing be national news?

  1. We haven’t done the same for sub Saharan Africa, or for all lost babies, because we aren’t making enough of a fuss. Tom is preaching at, and contributing to, the Occupiers. We all should. Nevermind that they can’t put their complaints onto one bumper sticker, they’re making a good start. Hey, Sis….. I MISS you! How’s NYU? Got an apartment? Bunny
