As so many others have apparently done, I've not paid much attention to what's going on in Sudan. I've paid a little bit of attention, and sent a couple of faxes and e-mails, but I really find I didn't know anything about what's going on there. Larry Lessig points to a dedicated web site that, in turn, points to a nice beginning point for understanding. When I learned that Joe Hoeffel, my Congressperson, who I also want to see win a Senate seat this fall, was arrested while participating in daily protests at the Sudanese Embassy, I paused to come here and post. Now I'll go back and attend to my embarrassing need to catch up.
