You say “the phrase ‘It Takes a Village…’ doesn’t originate with
Hillary Clinton (it’s an African proverb, after all)…”
So Mrs. Clinton told us. Do you believe it, though? It always
sounded to me like something someone came up with in a late-night
college-dorm lefty bull session.
I shall, however, kowtow to Mrs. Clinton’s superior understanding if
anyone can tell me which part of Africa the saying originates in, and
what it looks like in whichever African language gave birth to it.
