All the news that fits

Sadly enough, here's an intriguing piece of history that won't be archived in any library let alone a digital repository. Maybe we should gather up donations to send him phone cards.

The blackboard looks homemade. I had a friend there who made one with carbon from worn out batteries. He used it for teaching arithmetic to a number of people in town. Hard to tell from the picture but this one could have been made the same way. There's not a lot to work with over there just now.

Maybe we could send some of that black board paint that well let you turn anything into a chalk board.
