Everyone’s Favourite Special Envoy

stephenlewis.jpgNot that any of you would care, but Stephen Lewis is the key note speaker at University of Toronto’s Natural City Symposium tonight. Okay, maybe you do care, but you can’t go because it’s almost definitely sold out.
Stephen Lewis, of course, is the U.N.’s departing Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa. He’ll be teaching at Mac sometime soon, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that the man was a Special Envoy (“I was a Special Envoy. What did you ever do?”). And being the Special Envoy that he is, Mr. Lewis deserves the Nobel Peace Prize! So, since you’re not going to go hear him speak tonight, the least you could do is sign a petition to get him a nomination.
