It’s maddening and obvious. What really sticks in my craw is the way the media is portraying the US as the great saviour in Haiti’s time of need. But I suppose a history lesson about the US government’s role in economically and politically destabilizing its neighbor(s) isn’t really conducive to the aid drive. The image that comes to mind is of some brute breaking both a guy’s legs, offering him crutches and then expecting praise for his generosity. Arggh.

Sort of OT: I just watched Burn! 2 weeks ago. It’s a film loosely based Haiti’s colonial period. If you haven’t seen it, it’s well worth the watch.

Oh, thanks for the music!
