Welcome aboard

I am in Zambia until Thursday, Dec. 8 meeting with newspaper staffs and free-press advocates on a trip sponsored by the State Department and occasioned by the recent elections that ousted a rulimg party of 21 years and replaced it with one friendlier to journalists. But that also means that the editor of the only privately owned newspaper, once the paper in opposition, is now the minister of information. I meet with him this afternoon.

I won't have much opportunity to post for the next day or two but will do what I can.
