Wowmarker George Clooney yesterday 4/27

ON THE HILL
George Clooney – who recently returned from a trip to war-torn Darfur with his father Nick – meets up Thursday with Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) in Washington, D.C. The Oscar winner urged lawmakers to stop the reported genocide in the embattled region of Sudan. "What we cannot do is turn our heads and look away," he told reporters.

There were excerpts of the documentary he and his father did while
there...these were shown last night on several of the entertainment
half hour shows. I felt so bad when George explained that at night the women go out to get wood because they only get raped by the rebel soldiers, where as, if the men go out to get the wood the soldiers would kill them. What a horrible way of life for these people that just want to live peacefully.

Kudos to George for using his celebrity on behalf of others instead of being selfish and self absorbed like so many other "Hollywood Types"! ..

P.S.
He has a strange expression on his face - is he surprised?

I saw the oprah show and all the stories were really unnerving. The "nightwalkers". They are the children in Uganda, they walk all night to keep from being captured by the rebel army. If caught, they are used as sex slaves and then forced to fight. So the children stay on the move at night, because that is when the army raids the villages. If they capture children that are too young to rape or too young to fight, they just murder them. And the situation in sudan that George reported was no better to see or hear. Imagine, deciding who goes out at night? The greater evil, rape or murder. We are very blessed to live here. Very lucky.

Well, he has a great sense of humor and likes to clown around and play pratical jokes. I thought he looked like he was being goofy and they
caught him in the act...LOL
