Gates In The House

Unlike Gmail Paper, Bill and Melinda Gates did actually arrive in Hanoi on April 1st, according to this Vietnam Net Bridge news account.

This little piece (almost) covers the entire panoply of Vietnam today: world interest by multinational conglomerates in its labor force (and their attendant growing purchasing power); the still present need for NGO/foundation help with respect to basic health needs; the sometime poor quality of work product in this country - hasn't the reporter heard of Gardasil? It's worth a mention if one is talking about R&D for a cervical cancer vaccine.. 'cause like, that's been done already!
