Congratulations to Eritrea!September 6, 2010
Eritrea is a country that is rarely mentioned in the American press aside from its distinction of being governed by one of the world’s worst dictators. Nevertheless, I do have a modest connection to the place: L’s law firm has helped a large number of Eritrean refugees gain asylum here. So, in addition to being happy about the American men’s 2nd-place finish at the 2010 World Mountain Running Championships (held on September 5th in Slovenia), I was pleased to hear that the Eritrean men took home the gold. How about a little blogosphere cheer for the country that gave us Meb Keflezighi?
