Good Ship in Monrovia
A giant floating hospital has arrived in the Port of Monrovia, carrying 400 staff for the purpose of repairing cleft upper lip & palate, crossed eyes, flesh-eating diseases, and other important surgeries that most Liberian hospitals can't do. Of course, this is a great thing, and they should be commended.
One of our intrepid LL reporters was invited to a "cocktail party" on the ship, which turned out to be a strictly juice-and-water affair. The ship is said to be something of a floating Christian village, with full families living and working onboard. The movie The Stepford Wives was mentioned in comparison. Sounds like a great milieu for a novel!
