No, it’s not politics. But the news out of Haiti is horrific, and every blog in the world should be reposting ways to contribute to the relief efforts:
Already the Western Hemisphere’s poorest nation, Haiti is now in ruins. This tragedy should remind us that as we complain about the economy, the state budget, health-care reform and what have you, we should be grateful to live in a land of plenty, mostly unaccustomed to this kind of devastation.
