Illuminating Africa

The New York Times has been doing some good coverage of prosperity in Africa recently, most notably the region of Somaliland in northern Somalia as well as Ghana's 50th anniversary mentioned yesterday. The Times ran a nice piece on how Somaliland has solved its own problems and receives little international aid. The elders have organized multiparty elections and prevented clandestine fighting, while south in Somalia's capital of Mogadishu lawlessness still reigns.
