  2. @Shirley,

    Thanks! I really did wrack my brain trying to figure out how to make it humorous. But, I just couldn’t do it.

  3. Yep, Myanmar, aka Burma, is a huge problem right now. I was inspired by a short opinion piece by Daniel Schorr on NPR yesterday to write a little about the “Responsibility to Protect.” As far as humor goes, how well do you think humorists are doing in that country? Could be a dangerous occupation.

  4. @Mark,

    I’ll bet “humorist” is not a popular career choice there.

  5. Good one. I blogged about this issue also. I didn’t know about the Amnesty link you had and will be adding it to mine. Also, congrats on your CNN fame!

  6. @Ruinous Right,

    Thanks! I think it was a good issue to cover. By the way, I loved your interview with Anok on Identity Check.

    William, I just found you and I’m VERY glad I did. Now I’m going over to the Amnesty International website. You are needed in this world.

    Thanks! Amnesty International, BlogCatalog and Bloggers Unite are the REAL heroes here–but, I’m glad I could help out.

    Thanks for the link to the email form. Hopefully people are not just reading your blog, but also taking the next step to try and make a difference so more people do not have to die over there. Needlessly.

  19. @Ada,

    It appears that the Myanmar government is beginning to let relief workers into remote areas. Maybe the collective effort of Bloggers Unite and Amnesty International has made a difference. I am SO happy about this! :)
