Role reversal

I am used to being home on the East Coast, reading about and following calamities here in Southern Africa. It feels very strange to be in sunny Cape Town obsessively monitoring the path and impact of Frankenstorm Sandy. I am relieved that family and friends are safe, but horrified to learn of all the destruction.


About Evan Lieberman

I am a Professor of Political Science at MIT, and I conduct research, write, and teach about development, ethnic politics, and research methods.


One thought on “Role reversal

  1. I notice the irony of somebody on the poorest continent in the world worrying about people in Manhattan and New Jersey who may have lost a boat or their second laptop in a flood. I hope you won’t go all the way to donate money now: http://andreasmoser.wordpress.com/2012/11/04/no-donations-for-sandy/
