Pres. Bush is in Africa and touting US efforts to ensure enough bed netting is sent to Tanzania to protect every child between ages 1 and 5 from malarial mosquitoes. If he wanted to do something REALLY useful, he'd encourage the export of DDT to Tanzania, Kenya, Mozambique and other malaria-zone African countries to kill the mosquitoes. It's still the most effective, least expensive and non-invasive manner to save lives lost to malaria available.
