Of Vanities

This months Vanity Fair might have its shortcomings but it also has some pretty good brownie points. I highly recommend it. My favourites are Binyavanga Wainaina's article on Kenya, Brad Pitts interview with Desmond Tutu, and the article on Jeff Sachs especially the anecdote on Museveni and that last telling paragraph.

didnt really fancy that desmond tutus interview cause he came off as encouraging gay-ness if thats a word...or maybe i read it wrong but i just felt that was wrong especially as a christian but all in all it was a nice spread!

Just read it. The interview with Brad Pitt and Desmond Tutu makes me love Brad even more. Hot and pretty intelligent too.

@ bhookey84 thats the point of the interview. You do not have to share a persons world view, opinions or religion to respect or appreciate them as humans. it also does not mean you agree with them or are encouraging them. Jesus was the finest example of this.

@anonymous, my sentiments exactly

most people who advocate for us have a warped and incompletye view of the continent.
