So you like Jeffrey Sachs and Angelina Jolie?

Unanswered questions:
When Jeff Sachs refers to "improved seeds" does he mean genetically modified? When he says "fertilizer" does he mean chemical, therefore toxic? When they say "education" do they mean western-style learning and thinking?

The "feeding program" in the African village of Sauri reminds me of my elementary school years when we were fed with "US Aid" food -- dry milk, bulgur wheat, cornmeal. Come to think of it, I didn't feel poor and we weren't starving in those days but now that I look back (as the Jolie/Sachs video diary has reminded me) we kids from the third world must have seemed poor, needy, starving, and worthy of such beneficence
