"I'm what the world considers to be a phenomenally successful man. And I've failed much more than I've succeeded. And each time I fail, I get my people together, and I say, "Where are we going?" And it starts to get better." - Calvin Trager
Saturday, June 26, 2004 Blair calls it "The Ubiquitous Third World Treat" - no matter where you go, you can find Coke ... something of which Mackinnon is very glad. Here we are in a small community outside Sefwi Juabeso, one of the most deprived parts of the Western Region (just a little bit from the Ivory Coast border). There is no running water, no land phonelines, evidence of malnutrition among children - and Coke - which was given to all the peer educators to drink during their meeting. By the way, if you're wondering whatever happened to "New Coke" - it's here in Ghana, only here it's just called Coke and it's just what it tastes like. Which raises the question - did they ship New Coke off internationally when it bombed in America, or was it so successful internationally that they tried to introduce it in the U.S.? More mysteries of the universe to ponder. | Mike at 6/26/2004 10:51:00 AM

demeaned by the church if they ignore the new leprosy,

If it wakes up to what's really going on in the rest
of the world, it has a real role to play. If it doesn't,
it will be irrelevant."
