Please go to www.doctorswithoutborders.org to donate what you can for emergency medical relief services for Haiti. No established medical facilities remain intact--hospitals have been destroyed. Your donation will be appreciated immeasurably, and the karma goes without saying. (If you so choose, pick another legitimate relief organization, such as 1-800-REDCROSS or texting to 99099 to donate to the Red Cross, or choose www.directrelief.com, a low-admin-overhead org. funneling relief to Haiti). Bob and I have chosen Doctors Without Borders as the most direct way to help. If you hold a religious faith, please pray according to your ritual; if you don't, send good thoughts and healing energy Haiti's way.
I am still aghast at Rev. Pat Robertson's explanation (???!!!!) that the earthquake and Haiti's preexisting distress is due to their having "made a pact with the Devil when they were under Napoleonic rule" to serve Satan in return for being liberated from the French. I know that the Lord does not himself directly ordain His clergy; if He did, He certainly would be pulling Robertson's "ticket" right now; if G-d were a precinct commander and Robertson a cop, He would be demanding Pat turn in his badge and gun. I certainly hope that PBS--or as many affiliates as possible--cancels the "700 Club" ASAP.
