Shosholoza and the NY Times
Great coverage this morning on the front page of the NY Times, with the story "In South Africa, Yachting Erases a Racial Barrier", written about SA's entry into the America's Cup 2007. It echoes a lot of hope about South African society and is the kind of article we need a lot more of in the US in particular. At touch ambitious at times, and one thinks gets the feeling it's being tee'd up for some Hollywood scriptwriter as the next "Cool Runnings", but fantastic publicity none the less.
