Happy Belated Birthday, South Sudan!

I made a mental note of this but forgot to post it: we recently had a new country brought into the world.   After some fifty years of civil war and, more recently, a popular referendum authorizing independence, the black Christians and animists in the southern Sudan have broken away from the oppressive and discriminatory Arab and black Muslims in the north and formed their own country: South Sudan

Congratulations! We wish you peace, safety and prosperity.
