I am truly happy that Leonard Lopate is no longer avoiding the use of foreign names for people or geographical places. Today he said"Cote d'Ivoire" (I don't have accent keys on my computer) instead of "Ivory Coast." I hope he will persevere and apply this approach to an ever expanding list of names.

This whole thing started with the fall of Qaddafi. I remember everybody was very happy.

Now Islamists have their own country. Advanced weapons appear all over the place. Nice...
