Things are in crisis-mode there....and it's not only the men who are being mutilated.....women & children remain the main victims of the violence and abuse.

Thanks Kathy. I am appauled by the atrocities there. It does make life in the USA look better. GW may be a raving idiot of a dick-tator but . . . it could be worse. We do need to do something about the rampant violence in Africa.
