News Round-Up 4/25/14: A Week Of Wonks, Wars, & Woes

Happy Friday! We in the District are slated for showers later today and a nice weekend overall. Margarita Madness is tomorrow, so everyone prepare yourselves. Side note, if anyone is a Sub-Saharan, Southern, Western, or Eastern Africa enthusiast and interested in sending me articles, please feel free. The same goes for Oceania. Unfortunately my usual daily reads are lacking on that front and any boost would help!
