Generic Confusion

When you leave, my blog just fades to grey
Nu ma nu ma iei, nu ma nu ma nu ma iei

News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

Another one from Starbucks

The Way I See It #255

We will end poverty and stop HIV/AIDS within our generation when guided by African principles such as ubuntu that underscore our interconnectedness. With greater compassion for others, we would no longer accept hunger and disease as facts of life.

--Cedza Dlamini
Youth emissary for the UN Millennium Development Goals, founder of the Ubuntu Institute for Young Social Enterpreneur.

First, let's address the second point. Has ubuntu cured the common cold or influenza, or any other fast-mutating virus?

Second, where is the principle of ubuntu when Africans slaughter Africans of different skin colors, religions, and tribes?

This quote is about as far from reality as any I've ever seen.
