Fine Timing

Last night in the theology class I teach on peace and justice, I said there were better ways than military intervention to solve the problems in Darfur and Congo, and mentioned Liberia and Sierra Leone as evidence. The De­cember Sojourners arrived today, with John Prendergast’s fine articles on those four countries (“Continent of Hope: Respect, democracy, and diplomacy should guide U.S. engagement with Africa”). I’ve just e-mailed the respective Web links to all my students. Thanks for that eloquent support—and your awesome sense of timing!
