I could write for hours about these recent events, the inane and ignorant comments about slavery in Mauritania, and the even more deranged act of burning books. But for now it is just too repellent to dignify with serious comment.
Meanwhile, there are youth, workers, farmers, drivers, women, students and high school kids all still protesting and demanding their rights, calling for Aziz to leave. They at least deserve our attention.
In the storm of posts about the books being burned, we are likely to miss other important news.
