Joined by senators from the left and right, Oscar-winning actor George Clooney used his star power on Thursday to focus attention on Sudan's Darfur region, where he said the first genocide of this century was taking place.
Clooney told heart-breaking stories of visiting the border area between Chad and Sudan's Darfur region last week, where he watched refugees spilling into sordid camps and women foraging for food who faced the threat of rape or death.
As a rule, I'm not very keen on Mr Clooney's political initiatives, but when you're right, you're right, so more power to his elbow on this one.
As for my inconsistency:
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)
