Today is Liberia's 159th Founders' Day, or Independence Day, or National Day, depending on who you ask. Asked what percentage of men would be drinking today, one middle-aged Liberian colleague said, "At least 85." Sounds like the 4th of July in the USA. The big deal on this particular day is that President Johnson-Sirleaf is going to throw the switch on the municipal electricity system, in a cermony featuring heads of state from neighboring countries. USAID has funded the installation of billboards that show the streetlight system, with messages like "YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK".
