Man, oh man. Haiti.

This situation in Haiti is more than heartbreaking. After the initial disaster relief, how do you (re)build infrastructure for 3 million people?
Here's a good quote from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton:
But this is — I don’t want to mislead anybody. This is a devastating catastrophe. And just to figure out what steps to take so we don’t make the situation worse — I mean, it’s like looking at these collapsed buildings, Meredith. You know, you pull out one, you know, piece of wood; you may cause more damage than if you just let it stay there and went in a different way. This is incredibly complex work. We have some of the best people in the world from the United States down there, and we’re just going to do everything we can to be helpful.
