from Teq Minsky

Simply put, the Haitian population are taking care of themselves since no one else is.

Still sleeping in the streets, those whose houses have been demolished or damaged. They clean the garbage and sweep the streets prior to their putting out mattresses and bedding.

Droves leaving for provinces.

All the talk of aid...or distribution at airport...getting to airport?

Goods inflation...gas, water etc.

The city is VERY VERY VERY quiet. The thought of troops prepared for Iraq patrolling is chilling!

This is a time to encourage and support institutions in the provinces so that people can make a life there. Home town associations should be supported.
