Great quote

"Given the terrible economic and social challenges we now face in Haiti, we welcome the continuation of the positive economic benefits that the cruise ship calls to Labadee contribute to our country." - Leslie Voltaire, Special Envoy of the government of Haiti to the United Nations.

Some folks are waxing indignant over the fact that cruise ships continue to make port at Haiti, despite the devastation in parts of the island. Apparently they feel that the vacationers aboard should sacrifice the cruise they have saved for and paid for weeks or months before... in order to don sackcloth and ashes. Piffle!
