While reading my usual news sites this morning (afternoon) I came across this and this.

"Discrimination against albinos is a serious problem throughout sub-Saharan Africa, but recently in Tanzania it has taken a wicked twist: at least 19 albinos, including children, have been killed and mutilated in the past year, victims of what Tanzanian officials say is a growing criminal trade in albino body parts."

I suppose an African safari vacation would be a no-no for me.
