I haven’t blogged much about the recent tragedy at the Westgate mall – I do not mean to be politically incorrect, but the amount of attention the incident has received in the western media does seem disproportionate to me.  Perhaps it is because many in the West, myself included, have been to the Westgate Mall and not to places like the Yobe State College of Agriculture in Nigeria.

Nonetheless, please note that a group of area Kenyans are having a (somewhat expensive) fundraising happy hour for the Kenya Red Cross Thursday evening near Dupont Circle.  Eighteenth Street Lounge is the same venue as many of the YAP events.
