Western Sahara refuses to take a week-long break, even though I asked nicely

I went on Spring Break and all sorts of things happened. Polisario destroyed more than 3,000 landmines, the New York Times finally remembered the Western Sahara (though not fondly), and even The Economist got in on the action.

The rest of March and April are going to be good times for Western Sahara fans. As Morocco's autonomy presentation before the Security Council nears, both sides are increasing their lobbying efforts. Besides more articles about the Western Sahara, Moroccans and Sahrawis are visiting world capitals. President Abdelaziz of SADR is even coming to Washington this week (more on that later).

It's going to be a good month for the Western Sahara, so I hope you're as rested from your Spring Break as I am.
