“Stacia: I doubt that Lawrence O'Donnell (or anyone else for that matter) would disagree that 'well-nourished kids learning' is a wonderful mission. But Mr. O'Donnell has chosen a very worthy goal of giving them desks to still at while learning. Perhaps we can celebrate his mssion and your yours. It sounds as if you are unmoved by his ambitious undertaking. For someone who has spent the past 13 years in Malawi, that response surprises me. Especially for someone working with the Ministry of education. Both of you have an important work to accomplsih. Concentrate on that and the children of malawi will be well-served. In the meantime, I am excited about Mr. O'Donnell's project!
