There’s not much I can say or do, so I’ll just link to a few things:
- Links to Canadian charities accepting donations for Haiti. Please give if you can. I did. (To the Red Cross – I generally trust them to use the money well.)
- Via Boing Boing, a link to a Times Online article on exactly how Haiti came to be so poor and a plea to U.S.-based readers to support legislation to get Haiti’s debt cancelled. (Canada has already done so.)
- Shorter Pat Robertson: Haiti. Voodoo. They were asking for it. No they weren’t. See here for a good debunking. Then again, Robertson also thinks that martial arts etiquette involves “inhaling demon spirits”, so I too must have had dealings with the devil.
