Hotel Rwanda

   25 April 2005, evening time

Dave, Mezan, Martha and I watched Hotel Rwanda late Saturday night. The film is of course about the Genocide in Rwanda. Don Cheadle plays the manager of a 4-star hotel in Rwanda who works to save the lives of 1200 or so Tutsis who are taking refuge in his hotel. The film was done really well, and deserves all the praise it got. Hotel Rwanda might have been a more life affirming film if there wasn’t another genocide in the making taking place in the Sudan. It’s a little bit sad that in all this time, so little has changed.

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
