http://edition.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/africa/06/10/nigeria.poisons/index.html

(it didn’t fit in the same line)

Google searches:

“FIFA world cup 2010” :                                   49,400,000 results found

“Nigeria children deaths lead poisoning” :              112,000 results found

A difference of nearly 50 million.

I just had one thought…Does this reflect our priorities for today?
