A1: "Call for peace in Darfur"

It's interesting to watch how the bottom of page one has become the protester's corner of late. Leafy photo of the square + people with passionate views + homemade signs = not much, really, but at least the issues are getting out there. It's like a letter to the editor, but you get a photo too.

Courier editors: The Darfur problem stopped being 'purported' genocide when the US Secretary of State publicly identified it as such. Honest, this isn't just a hippie issue anymore.

You know, this does raise an interesting thought. At what point does genocide stop being purported?

My great uncle was something of a bore at parties in the 1930's as he went on about the evils of Nazism, that is until after Pearl Harbor. Then everyone had always been on the side of the angels.

If I know the story you're talking about, it's been a while ago. According to the archive it ran in the Courier on February 6 as "Prescott police arrest California fugitive," with Mirsada's byline.
