Your Letters

You wrote in "Burundi: Heightism Rears Its Ugly Head" (issue 179): "Maybe that's what these deals are about, when you come down to it -- getting it on your resume, so you can go back to the State Department and say, "I'm the guy that brokered Peace Treaty No. 3,549 in Rwanda/Burundi/Congo/Uganda/-Tanzania. It was a great treaty, too -- lasted almost two weeks!".... They're like war junkies who keep each other from quitting. If peace breaks out in Uganda, there's always a war next door in Tanzania or Congo ready to "spill over" (that's the word the newspapers always use) and start things up again. Then when Tanzania goes quiet, there's always some handy little brush war in Uganda ready to return the favor. The regional motto should be, "Hey buddy, got a light?"

To the best of my knowledge, Tanzania, for all its other woes, has yet to see a war within its borders. My mom slightly knew Julius Nyerere long ago.

Steven Chaney

Dear Mr. Chaney, Julius Nyerere replies, "Wait, I think I remember your mother too. Let's see...I'm racking my brains here...All I recall is the top of her head. Brunette, right? Big lips? I'm sorry, it's just that there were a lot of guys' mothers who slightly knew me, and for the life of me I still can't distinguish one bobbing scalp from the next."
