I've got to pack for a five day stay at a school where I'll train to be certified as

dispatcher. I'd better get packing soon. I doubt I'll be able to get on line in those
days. My attempt to register with this phone blog thing never finished loading.
Here's something that caught mine eye this morning.

A newsgroup out of Utah included this notice:
On Thursday, July 19th, Julienne Amato was laid to rest in
Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo
(DRC), during a ceremony which was attended by members of
her family and others who appreciated her role in Congolese
history and contributions and sacrifices she made during her
life.
...
June 30, 2000 represented the 40th anniversary of the
independence of the Democratic Republic of the Congo
shedding its more popularly known humiliating colonial image
as the Belgian Congo. That dramatic change was precipitated
by the leader of the Congolese National Movement, Patrice
Lumumba, who was
born July 2, 1925, the son of Julienne
Amato and Francois Tolenga, and was assassinated January
17, 1961, a victim of U.S. imperialism, its western
allies and African lackeys.
