Thinking Makes It So: I've never met a Darfur rebel

-A A +A
By Kelly LeVan

I read Monday on BBC that at least 10,000 people died as a result of this week’s earthquake in the Sichuan province in southwestern China. I read several news reports estimating more than 28,000 are dead in Myanmar after the cyclone. A mob killed two migrants in Johannesburg, South Africa, injuring 40 more. Upwards of 60 people have been killed in the last week in Tripoli, Lebanon, as fighting has flared between those who support the government at the Hezbollah-led opposition. Violence continues in Sudan, Israel, Iraq, Afghanistan – where have I left out?

I tend to isolate myself – to follow very closely the activities of the Los Alamos Arts Council, for instance, without knowing what’s going on as far off the Hill as Santa Fe, let alone Washington, D.C., or Beirut.

But since I returned from China in March, I’ve tried to take a little more interest in world news. I read the headlines out of Beijing every day, and click on other news headlines online a few times per week. For what it’s worth, I’ve also watched a few segments of “The Daily Show.”
