Help Haiti


   I haven't posted anything on the Haiti catastrophe, mainly because I've felt so overwhelmed by it all.   What to say, where to start?  Then, Craig Ferguson (host of the "Late, Late Show on CBS") said something that got my attention, especially in light of my recent Conan post:  "Haiti is more important than which white guy gets millions."  He's right. Seriously, people.  The millionaires will all be fine.
   I've chosen to help the earthquake victims in Haiti by donating to Catholic Relief Services.  If you haven't yet been moved to do so, I encourage you to help in any way you can.
   Thank you.

Boomer Girl,

From this Boomer Guy, I want to thank you for this post on Haiti. I was amazed at the devastation too, but your comments on the rich white guys is right. They will be fine. I donated to my church's relief fund this morning.

Unfortunately, the Haiti disaster will be with us, and more unfortunately with them for 10 years or more. Thanks for your insight.
