Haiti: About the Earthquake, Relief, and Related Topics

Haiti's in the news - a lot - this week.

For good reason.

That 7.0 earthquake at about 5:00 Haiti time Tuesday, January 12, 2010, made a mess of Port au Prince, Haiti's capital. The rest of the country isn't in particularly good shape, either.

Most importantly, if you're in a position to help Haitians: It's your call, but I think it's a good idea to support legitimate relief efforts. And, if you give money: make sure that the organization you give to is legit.

(A none-too-well-updated list of charities is near the end of this post.)
