You've seen the story, I bet:
KABKABIYA, Sudan - Former President Carter got in a shouting match Wednesday with Sudanese security officials who blocked him from a town in Darfur where he was trying to meet representatives of ethnic African refugees from the ongoing conflict.So he does meet some of them -- as I imagine it, he walks from hut to hut, where the frightened inhabitants feign deafness and shoo him out, whereupon he glares at his escorts, unaware of the pop-pop-pop of gunfire in the shacks he just left.
...Billionaire businessman Richard Branson, who was traveling with Carter, said several had slipped written notes into his pocket to express their feelings to Carter...Notes saying, maybe, "For the love of all that is holy, please leave the area."
The visit by "The Elders," which is headed by Carter and Nobel Peace laureate Desmond Tutu, is largely a symbolic move by a host of respected figures to push all sides to make peace.Oh, I should H/T the cool costumes.
