Happy Late Africa Day

I would like to wish everyone a happy Africa Day, though I must apologize because the holiday was actually on Friday May 25th. Unfortunately I was in transit from my former house in Colorado Springs to my current residence in the great state of Wisconsin, so I was unable to cover the monumental holiday on the actual day. Africa Day is celebrated to comemorate the founding of the Organization of the African Union back on May 25th, 1963. The OAU is the organization that eventually evolved into what is now known as the African Union, the flag of whom is displayed above. In celebration of this day let us take some time and learn about what is going on in Africa these days. Check the links to see the latest news and reports:

Damn, there's a lot going on.
