I don't know what to say about the earthquake in Haiti. A corner of the world that has endured too much devastation was just handed much more. Tyler Cowen comments:
Just two days ago I was trying to convince a group of my colleagues to come to Haiti with me for a three-day weekend outing. Had we gone, we would have stayed in what is now the epicenter of the earthquake. The hotel I had in mind ... I believe it does not exist any more but has fallen down the hills into oblivion. It is difficult for me to fathom what must be going on there and how it will continue to play out. In addition to thousands of lives, much of the Haitian cultural heritage has been destroyed. Here is an image of Simbi, god of healing.
It's all the sadder because Haiti had come so far in recent years.
