If Luol's Down...

...I'm down. Give $10 (or more) to Nothing But Nets.

Interesting, important discussions about Western paternalism and charity aside, this seems like a pretty benevolent cause to me. It doesn't mean we should stop fighting against the ruling class' stomach-turning predations on the continent of Africa (or absolve Nothing But Nets' chairman, Ted Turner, of the crime of being the nation's largest private land owner), but, until those tasks are fully accomplished, there are worse things to do with your time and money than preventing refugees from contracting malaria. (Such as, uh, reading this blog.)
