The Cathy Award Goes To...

It's not light summer reading material, but July's issue of Vanity Fair is very much a must-read. I am so thrilled that Bono is the guest-editor, and most of the magazine is dedicated to a continent the rest of the world would rather not think about. To quote Bono on page 32, "Next year more than 10 million children's lives will be lost unnecessarily to extreme poverty, and you'll hear very little about it." If this were happening in Europe or North America, it would be breaking news day after day after day. But not for Africa...

It's a fascinating issue, and I hope you'll find yourselves a copy. You have many different covers to choose from, with Barack Obama, Muhammad Ali, Oprah Winfrey, Desmond Tutu, even (wonders never cease) George W. Can you blame me for buying the copy with Brad Pitt on the cover?

Come on. I'm only human!

So funny that you mention that cover. When the issue came out, I was in such a rush to get the it that I grapped the one with Condoleeza Rice on the cover. Boy was I disappointed when I saw I could've had the one with Brad Pitt and Djimon Hounsou(sp?). I tried to tell my husband the profits go to Red to justify buying another one, but he's not buying it. :)
