on sharing colours

When I came across the shameful news of the raid on The Standard & KTN in Kenya last night (thx 4 sharing, IW), the first thing that came to my mind was 1933 and the infamous Book burning that destroyed a lot of intellectual property.
While some of you might consider this an overreaction to yesterday’s events, to me this just isn’t a government harassing the press and trying to cover up unpleasant stories, but a direct insult of telling people – the people – what to think.

We, the citizens of this world, are still intelligent enough to figure out what’s relevant and what’s not.

On a lighter note: did you know that the Kenyan and German flag share almost the same colours? I think that’s a nice coincidence :-)
