MALTHUS IS DEAD, PAUL EHRLICH WAS WRONG, AND EVEN THE VERY FUNNY COMMENTERS ARE ASSUMING THAT CENSUSES IN AFRICA ARE REAL AND THE POPULATION IS EXPLODING THERE: I don’t know whether to pat them on the head for their trust in governments that are net recipients of aid per-capita, or be in awe of their confidence that tribal, screwed up Africa could get an accurate count if they wanted to (note, we don’t, and pad the censuses with all sorts of “uncountable” people).  And that’s before I ARGH at the fact they don’t seem to notice the massive deaths from AIDS (which was actually an heterosexual disease there, for various cultural reasons and an epidemic) were never shown in the count.  But overall, their hearts are in the right place.  You can have our burgers when you pry them out of our cold, dead hands.
