Your true traveller finds boredom rather agreeable than painful.
It is the symbol of his liberty - his excessive freedom.
He accepts his boredom, when it comes, not merely philosophically,
but almost with pleasure.

George Clooney the new South Sudanese Ambassador

Sudan: One country or two? - RIZ KHAN - Al Jazeera English

I used to think highly of Al Jazeera but now I feel all shaken... Why would they ever consider bringing George Clooney to a talk show to explain the matter with South Sudan and the upcoming referendum? Has Mr Clooney recently became South Sudanese? And has he on top of this been appointed by... someone to the job of South Sudan Ambassador?

It really annoys me to see these western pop-stars taking leading role when Africa is concerned! Next we'll have Wyclef Jean president of Haiti!
