Woody and Mia’s boy genius has some NGO noses out of joint

I don’t know what it is with celebrities and refugees, but here is another version of the ‘stars’ doing high profile humanitarian work.  Ronan Farrow, reportedly a genius who went to college at age 11 has been appointed a special liason between NGO’s working in Pakistan and the State Department.
