Cultural sensitivity





Dadgummit. It's Myanmar and has been since 1989.

Did I miss something? The newsweek link doesn't have anything about Myanmar (or Burma, for that matter)...

And for your post a few days back - I *did* read for Bizorg, I just hadn't read *yet* that day. :-p

Hmm. It's supposed to link to Newsweek's Conventional Wisdom, which does refer to "Burma" . . .

At any rate--I read it on there earlier today and at church this weekend somebody kept calling it "Burma" during a we-are-the-world-and-we-need-cultural-sensitivity talk.

Oh duh - I was looking for it in the text, so I totally missed the heading that very clearly did say "Burma." Whoops!
