I HOPE THAT they post Samantha Power's TED talk from last week as soon as possible.
FOR IN IT, you will get to see what a smart and funny and deeply principled scholar looks like when she gets tired of the annoying absurdities of political life, such as PRETENDING THAT GENOCIDE ISN'T REALLY HAPPENING.
I FOUND her call and efforts to organize a meaningful policy to deal with genocide one of the most inspiring things I heard at the conference.
(THAT, and Joshua Klein's plan to crowdsource litter management to enormous packs of CROWS).
BUT BECAUSE Hillary Clinton apparently can't bear to be called a name, a brilliant, talented woman is chased from public service--at least for now.
I CALL IT MONSTROUS.
That is all.
