Coverage of Darfur, Sudan Hits the News

It is about time. The news is going to cover the genocide and the tragic state of affairs in Darfur, Sudan. While many of us do not watch TV, I urge you to watch CBS's 60 Minutes on Sunday, August 28, 2005.
On Sunday, August 28, the CBS television news magazine 60 Minutes will report on the crisis in Darfur. Please check your local listings.

THE KILLING IN SUDAN -- The horrible images of genocide are captured for a report on the mass murder and subsequent refugee crisis in the Darfur region of Sudan. Scott Pelley reports.

You can find more information about the program on the 60 Minutes web page.
If you would like further information on this subject, I am referring you to This is a reputable organization, and we finally have an opportunity to something about a situation of which we do not approve.

The ratings alone will send a message to Congress (toll free: 1-877-762-8762,) the Senate (toll free: 1-877-762-8762,) and President Bush (202-456-1111.) I thank you on behalf of the peoples who do not a voice...yet.
