Free Tibet! (well, work on it anyway)

In that same Mark Steyn article:

Meanwhile [..] while fond of "causes," leftists dislike those that require meaningful action: Ask Tibetans about the effectiveness of America's half-a-century "Free Tibet" campaign; or ask Darfuris, assuming you find one still breathing, how the left's latest fetishization is going from their perspective:

"On Sunday, April 29, Salt Lake Saves Darfur invites the greater Salt Lake community of compassion to join with us as we honor the fallen and suffering Darfuris in a day of films, discussion and dance with a Sudanese dance troupe."
Marvelous. I hope as the "Salt Lake Saves Darfur" campaign intensifies in the decades ahead there'll still be enough Darfuris to man the dance troupe. It would be truer to say the greater Salt Lake community of compassion, like Mr. Obama with his light bulbs, is "working on" saving Darfur.
