That Kony thing again...

It's great when so many people offer their opinions on an issue that you don't have to. My overriding feelings on the latest issue de jour kind of follow fellow poet Suli Breaks, in that it's all too easy to adopt an 'anti' stance by default, and criticise other people for not knowing their facts, when you know even less. Whilst some of the facts of the Kony video may be distorted for the purposes of propoganda, and whilst the Invisible Children charity has a few question marks hanging over it, the resulting awareness of the video is good and the most basic facts remain true: it's a cruel world out there.

Needless to say, it's now been pulled. Racial epithets aside, it's just weird and it's just wrong...
