    The State Department wants to help Haiti?
    Start importing my mangoes from Haiti?
    Start importing bananas cause the only kind of bananas sold around here are those run of the mill, breed called, Cavendish.
    i'm sure those in Haiti consume better tasting bananas compared to the junk we import.
    Help haiti improve its agriculture by having Haiti grow crops that the american consumer wants,not what the big businesses want.
    Tell Starbucks to get me some good coffee from there?
    Start Haiti growing the Moringa tree to combat deforestation, improving health from aspects of the tree.
    provide good sounded investiment in agriculture,WITHOUT mandatory cheap american foodstuffs flooding the domestic marketplace,thus destroying their agricultural sector.
    Decrease that 50 percent unemployment rate, another way to help Haitians also involves themselves helping themselves with jobs.
    all new home construction to be built with high guidelines in reference towards earthquakes.
    Good macrolending for starting good business ideas.
    i would buy atleast some of my STUFF from Haiti,compared to all of my STUFF from China. I got nothing against china, but spread it around alittle too.

    This tragedy is worse than most outsiders can grasp. Some very articulate reporters currently in Haiti have been left speechless, at a loss for words. It's being described as reality at its worst. From the majority of the comments on blogs about this disaster, most outsiders don't want to grasp its enormity. This scale of devastation has not been seen since WWII.

    Jon,
    Why are you and chetry trying to denigrate the country even at this hour. Child slavery? Criminals...
    There are thousands of Haitians of Heroes and Heroine risking their lives to save strangers and all you could do is talk about prison and other moronic stuff. This is your chance to stop potraying Haiti negatively.

    STOP THE PRISON & CRIMINAL NONSENSE AND TALK ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE WHO DON"T KNOW EACH OTHER ARE DOING ALL OVER THE CAPITAL TO HELP THEM. PLEASE SHOW THE HAITIAN CHARACTER WHICH NEWS IN THE US HAVE ALWAYS INGNORED FOR WHAT MOST HAITIANS FEEL ARE RACIST REASONS.
    MORE THAN TWO MILLION PEOPLE ARE IN THE STREET. ALSO, THIS IS NOT ABOUT LOOTING> FOLKS ARE TAKING FOOD TO DISTRIBUTE AS THERE IS NO DISTRIBUTION LINES. INSTEAD OF BEING SENSATIONALISTS PLEASE BE FAIR AND RESPONSIBLE AN DRESPECTFUL.

    There are thousands of people working to help the Haitian people in their time of need including doctors without borders. I do respect and like Dr. Gupta but enough already. I have seen him put a bandage on a 15 day old baby at least half a dozen times.

    Show some of the other great people... We have seen enough of Dr. Gupta.
