Ok. It's of course great that Angelina has become a dynamic humanitarian force in the world. It's really really great. BUT I don't know if she should count as qualified to be on this council (I don't purport to know much about this council and its members-I'm merely assuming they are a deserving and illustrious group). Maybe she supplements her high school degree by being self-taught on humanitarian issues but I haven't read or heard anything explicitly saying she has done this. I don't mean to detract from the importance of experiential knowledge at all - I just strongly believe in book knowledge serving as an anchor and framework for understanding the world at large. I am not convinced that she is learned enough in humanitarian issues and other areas of study to be a meaningful addition to the council. I hope to be convinced or proven wrong - thoughts?
