Manute Bol in Iowa
It's funny, when you get an e-mail with a subject line reading "Manute Bol Takes on the Candidates in Iowa," you figure it's gonna contain nothing but hilarity and photos of Manute Bol wearing an Abraham Lincoln hat and stumping with Ron Paul through some snowy yard to talk to Jim and Sally Dweebenzucker about corn subsidies.
But then, when you read the e-mail, it turns out that Manute Bol is actually holding a press conference and rally on the west steps of the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines on Tuesday afternoon, while joined by hundreds of Sudanese U.S. citizens, who will be demanding the Presidential candidates address atrocities in Darfur and throughout Sudan. Among their questions:
What would you do to end the genocide in Darfur?
Should the U.S. deal with the Government of Sudan by segmenting Darfur, Southern Sudan, Nubia etc. as separate and isolated matters, or with Sudan as a whole?
See? Not funny. But Manute Bol is forever a D.C. sports figure, and Iowa is the most important place in the universe, so I'm writing about this even if no top hats are involved.
