"the" Mrs. Astor

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.

Rush Limbaugh, ever the caring soul of The Middle Ages, announced today when asked about the appointment of Bill Clinton as special envoy to the disaster of Haiti said, "I'm just gonna tell you, if I was named envoy to Haiti, I'd quit government. Envoy to Haiti? You can't even pick up a prostitute down there without genuine fear of AIDS." Well, I guess that tells us that the only reason that the blunderbuss of blatant bluster would consider going to Haiti would be to buy sex. Why didn't his heart give out a couple of weeks ago? Is he just a lesson to decent people everywhere of just what evil in human flesh is like? There will be a special place in Hell for that fat pig.

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.

I used the same photo on my blog...how heartbreaking is that picture? Please encourage people to donate to the Red Cross. They can be sure that their money will go directly to the relief of the Haitian people. http://american.redcross.org/site/PageServer?pagename=ntld_main
