      I've just picked up the Winter, 2001 issue of the "Public Interest" journal.
      There is an article "My Time in Peace Corps," by Saral Waldorf (Malawi
      94-96). Her essay brings up some interesting issues about professional vs.
      unskilled generalist placements, taxpayer costs per volunteer, and
      host-country benefits. To make a long story short, she basically concludes
      that the current system doesn't work in respect to providing skilled
      manpower, amongst other things. I agree with some of her points, but
      disagree with some as well. I recommend you all read it at the library if
      possible, and draw your own conclusions-- this is a professional journal
      article which may influence policy-makers.

      To her credit (and to my relief), Saral does not specifically mention any of
      us who knew her in the article- by name or example- in support of her
      thesis.
