Back in the days, the Afghan refugee camps were a must-visit for NY, DC and LA celebs [see Charlie Wilson's War]. Such hasn’t been the case in a while. Angelina Jolie, who spreads Goodwill as a UN Ambassador, is currently visiting the camps outside Peshawar. She has been there before in August 2001 and published her journals as well. In late September 2001, she donated $1 Million to the relief fund for Afghani refugees. Remarkably good of her.
Let me get the shallow bit out by pointing out that she looks damn fine in the shalwar kameez. On a more serious note, I have been to the refugee camps and I applaud Ms. Jolie and her work on behalf of the refugees of the world. CM editorial board endorses your purchase of any Jolie-associated products. Ah. I just cannot get serious this friday.
Have a good weekend, gentle readers.
