Ethiopian kids Xoom into new world I t was about eight months ago when a groundbreaking experiment by Cambridge nonprofit One Laptop Per Child brought Matt Keller to the remote village of Wonchi, Ethiopia. There, he had to identify 20 children who would receive a Motorola Xoom tablet. Among them was a boy who didn’t make eye contact. Kelebasa, 8, was withdrawn and disengaged, but when Keller handed him the tablet, Kelebasa soon found the “on” button. He raised his hands in the air and yelled...

Let me also say this, the property was probably looking abandoned. The people in Michigan have gotten so much stimulus money and breaks when it comes to their homes. Shit is ridiculous. I know a guy (White guy) I went to high school with who lives out there in Michigan and he practically got several thousands of dollars in aide to help him keep his home from the Federal gov't. But black folk were being kicked out left an right.

My sentiments exactly, Koco. (Hey, I could see if she was "squatting" on one of the many properties that banks had foreclosed on with no mercy towards the people who had sunk their life's savings and income in, and are not neglecting to the point of abandonment, running down everyone else's property values in the neighborhood; THEN , I might would side with her ).
