It isn't every day that Malawi is in the news. Having lived there with my family as a contract teacher for almost eight years, I know for a fact that news, especially unfavorable articles about that landlocked nation, has been repressed for years and years. There is no TV, and if magazines like Time or Newsweek have anything criticizing the government of Malawi, copies will be withdrawn from newsstands or bookstores. Those who get theirs in the mail very often do not get the magazine at all.
Michael Hiltzik's report and insights on Malawi are pretty accurate except that he failed to mention that Malawians are basically a disciplined and peace-loving people (Part I, Nov. 22).
