Do something

It's an abrupt buzz-kill from this site's recent levity and nostalgia, but I just saw my name on Me and Ophelia's list of bloggers passionate about international justice. I'm surprised by the inclusion, and can't help but think she's politely, implicitly, challenging me to put my money where my mouth is.

Unlike the Amazon hoax I railed against last weekend, this crisis is real, and it's not getting the attention it deserves. James Moore has got the latest on the genocide in Sudan. Passion of the Present lists the ways readers can get involved.

For all our opinions and perceived influence, bloggers haven't done a whole lot to change the world. Now seems like a hell of a time to try and start. Pass it on.
