This blog is an attempt to illuminate factual claims of the presidential race 2008, presented by those on any side of the political/social-cultural continuum, by going back to source materials rather than sound bites. It's tedious and boring data, but somebody's gotta do it. Hey, I'm a baseball fan; I like trivial datapoints.

In 2008, I worked as a Kiva Fellow in Kampala, Uganda, an experience that only increased a long-held interest I had in Africa and effective aid, reflected in these posts.
