Leonardo"s Notebook by Mattheus Mei

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

Pepsi Presents New Zanzibar

Unfortunately it's probably not as humourous as the Simpson's episode potrayed African Coups.

Saw it on CNN this morning and more details from an AP article, but a military coup has taken place in Mauritania ousting the sitting President and Prime Minister for firing four top military commanders. The millitary is claiming that the government was corrupt and was being to complacent with their dealings with Islamofascists.

I've actually got a friend who is a former Peace Corps volunteer working for a NGO in Mauritania. I've e-mailed her to find out her status, but communication has been far and few between especially on her blog. The AP article suggests that all US nationals are safe and accounted for which is a good thing.
