    and the reporters say we are 72 hours in and just like in Katrina very very very little aid is getting to the people.. Why in the hell don't the Perfect People use helicoptors to deliver food and water? we are talking about 9 million people here.

    According to some sources the Haitians are blocking roads with corpses.
    If they are, then they're idiots and they probably will die.

    I once read an article (because I live in Hurricane Heaven) about disaster,, somewhere between 48 and 72 hours anarchy breaks out. These folks had very little infrastructure and central authority before this earthquake.. somebody needs to do something.. Janet????

    A carrier arrived today with 19 helicopters, 3 operating rooms, and are able to make fresh drinking water. New Orleans also had more than one run way and is an not island.
    There is also a hospital ship on it's way from Baltimore, which takes more than a few days to get there.
    Maybe you should watch another channel.

    I think they were already in anarchy. I foresee they've already seen the worst and things are shaping up.

    Also Columbia, Brazil, China, and many other countries have brought in workers and supplies. So instead of being so negative about this, why don't you look at the facts and realize a lot of people have come together to help these people.

    I'm not being negative. doesn't matter if you have a million people to help,, it ain't help if you cannot get to the people who need help,, 3 days and counting
