Labor and Human Rights Win One

It was in southern Africa, too. Seems that South African dockworkers refused to unload a shipment of Chinese arms bound for Zimbabwe, even though many of the dockworkers are members of the ANC--the leadership of which has been criticized for its closeness to Mugabe. Even the Bush administration got into the act and did something good, getting the Angolan government to turn the ship away, too.

Something in the paper that will put a smile on your face.

Oh, and here's another one. It seems that Georgetown (School of Foreign Service, not the College) isn't renewing Feith's contract: "Word is that keeping Feith on beyond the two-year term again would have infuriated a number of faculty members. Well, there are always those "dead-enders," as former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld so eloquently noted back in June 2003." And they didn't even ask me.
