Scenes from a disaster

Haiti may have fallen out of the headlines, but the suffering there will take a lifetime or more to end. Portlander Conrad Radzik was there recently, and he took a bunch of photos, which are posted here. What a mess. And the rainy season hasn't even started in that part of the world yet.

I am reading an amazing book about Haiti called "General Sun, My Brother". I found it via Google by searching "greatest Haitian novel" after hearing of the Haitian quake and realizing I knew very (very) little about Haiti and its people.

It is quite a good read for anyone wanting to learn about Haitian social protest and folk culture in the mid-20th century.
