Tomgram: Compiled and edited by Tom Engelhardt. by David Morse, "With the Lost Boys in Southern Sudan. Starting from Zero (Part 1)" and "The Coming Collision in Sudan (Part 2)", October 2007
"Morse takes us along on a two-part journey he made with three young refugees, three "Lost Boys," returning to the homes they fled years ago in the midst of a bitter civil war in southern Sudan. Though this region is largely ignored in the U.S. at the moment, that is unlikely to last for reasons Morse describes in his dramatic first-person account of traveling through the southern part of a Sudan poised at the edge of the abyss."

David Morse, The Myth of "Darfur". CommonDreams.org, February 21, 2007.
". . . Unfortunately, the 'Darfur' that has seized the public imagination is . . . conceived in isolation from the rest of Sudan. The comparative brightness of the spotlight separates Darfur from the larger, darker landscape of Sudan. It blinds us to what is happening in the South, where a pivotal peace agreement signed two years ago threatens to fall apart."
