Angelina Jolie visits Myanmar refugee camp



Tbdangelinajolie020909 On Wednesday Angelina Jolie toured the bamboo huts of the Ban Mai Nai Soi refugee camp two miles from the Myanmar border, near the northern Thailand town of Mae Hong Son. Jolie and Brad Pitt have been touring camps like this the past few days to draw attention to the plight of the people caught between Myanmar government troops and ethnic insurgents. We would follow our usual formula and make fun of her somehow, but using your fame and fortune to highlight human suffering takes all the venom out of our fangs.
