When do we get our due, how do we blow our own trumpet? Recall the Liberian Crisis. An African solution lead by Nigeria, ECOMOG, however bad, stepped in, and brought back democracy. (Same with Sierra Leone even though the British have successfully stolen the credit there). Just like the US lead coalition of NATO in Afghanistan.

I really did not want to write this, but gaddamn!! I can't get it out of my mind! I am not sure if I am angry, oh yes I am angry!!!! but am I also sad, or what I just do not know in fact. So I was fortunate to attend a luncheon in Maryland, for the President of Ghana recently when he was in the US for the United Nations general session.
Like a typical African, he came 2-1/2 hours late! But we were told he was coming from a meeting at the White House. I guess thatís a good excuse.
I just mentioned I have been sooo busy recently. And here is one of the reasons why. I had to give a deposition today on a company case in a Law office today. What should have been a 1 1/2 hour activity took my whole day! Imagine!
I was fortunate to sit through the deposition of fellow before me and was able to understand the situation even better. As this is an ongoing case, I of course can not give details. But I think I can say as soon I got done with my part after 6pm, from 11am!
People I have been too busy, too busy to even blog on some burning issues troubling me, to many things happening at the same time. But, I still listen to good ole Naija music to relax late at night like tonite at 1.33am.
And I was just on You Tube and came across this dude Banky W's new video. I think this is one of the top 5 videos I have seen come out of that country. Simply the creativity. The old time setting...great. Its not without critism, my main one being, dude, why emulate
