    Eoin: This is pretty funny, & there’s a lotta truth in it. As someone who’s had to share space with a lot of rather odd folks over the past 30 years, I agree that treating each other like adults & keeping it light is a good way to go. … But that’s kind of hard to remember when you reach the point where you just want to strangle your roommates…. Good laughs, anyway….

    Not to nag, but didn’t you have a long feature on South Sudan coming up sometime soon? Looking forward to it….

    Thanks Tad. P.S. That sounds like nagging to me!
