A bit pointless - why pick a zombie language to converse in? I'm sure most people would rather debate in a language that isn't exclusive to a limited group of elitists.

Re: KONY 2012

Here's another critique, this time by Christopher Hitchens in Vanity Fair, who spent time with the victims of Kony: http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/features/2006/01/hitchens200601 ...he was spared from being made into a concubine or a sex slave, because the L.R.A. doesn't tolerate that kind of th...
