I started contacting the powers-that-be here to coordinate a fund-raising effort the victims of Haiti. One thing I can point in pride about Miami is that is bonds together in times like these. Many radio and television stations have devoted massive time to efforts for relief; it is times like these that everyone here remembers that they are not natives of paradise, but guests. God help those poor souls down there.
Interestingly, at 7.30 PM the local stations all took their priorities into account; CBS channel 4 felt the need to report on the newest Kardasian gossip, Fox channel 7 thought their Deco Drive's following of club news was important, ABC channel 10 had to show Jeopardy, while NBC channel 6 devoted the half hour to reports of the Haitian disaster, focusing on the agencies hurriedly organizing help. We all have our priorities.
