Long time reviewer and writer for our website, Paula M. Hirschoff (Kenya 1968–70), published an op-ed in the Washington Post on September 3, 2007, entitled, “From a Mix of Skills, A Fine Porridge.” Paula and her husband Chuck Ludlam are doing second tours in the Peace Corps in Senegal. Paula was sent to Senegal as a “small-business consultant” though as she writes, “What I knew about entrepreneurship could have fit into the cap of my ballpoint pen.” Before this tour, Paula was a Washington based anthropologist and writer. In Kenya, in the Sixties, she was a teacher and principal.
