Which was the last story you remember hearing about in the news?

Border Security?
Gay Marriage?
Sudanese Genocide?

My guess is that unless you've gone out of your way it's been awhile since you've been updated on the atrocities being committed and the eruptive atmosphere which provoked the conflict in the Sudan. Baring this in mind, its not surprising to learn there are large oil reserves beneath the Darfur area; in fact, 563 million barrels per day worth. Internally, 4 million people have been displaced, and drilling currently has begun in that very region. Why, oh why, has the liberal media omitted this from the national conversation?
