Are the campaign buses stopping here?

Well, they should.

I always thought of museums as places that depict what was--a way to capture and keep alive what we have already lived through. The Holocaust Museum is opening an exhibit on Dafur to depict the genocide taking place right now against Africans there. Children and adults are being burned alive. Finally it's not just nobodys talking about it. Finally Important People and Organizations are acknowledging what has been obvious for months--years?--it is genocide.

"Never forget," unless you're busy hunting for oil.

I'm thinking the Kerry/Edwards campaign bus ought to stop by. Since the current administration has at best paid lip service to the crisis, perhaps the challengers can do better.
