NY Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, on his Facebook page this morning:
After 9/11, the French newspaper Le Monde declared: We Are All Americans. And after yesterday's earthquake: Today, we are all Haitians. No country seems to have had worse luck with misrule, environmental mismanagement, natural disasters and poor governance than Haiti. Haitians are a lovely people who deserve far better.
My thoughts are with the people and government of Haiti this morning, as they begin the process of digging themselves out of this horrendous disaster.
