Give give give give give

There are times when throwing money at a problem doesn't help. This isn't one of them. I'm not trying to be a second-rate Sally Struthers, but the people in Haiti desperately need help. And by help, I mean your money. (I donated to Save the Children; Frank texted 90999 to give $10 to the Red Cross. Yep.)

Everything I try to say seems maudlin. It seems unfair that these people, already so destitute that you and I can barely comprehend such poverty, had nothing and are now left with even less. I keep going back to this story, which begins with a man pleading, "I just want my wife's corpse."

I think it's safe to assume that most of us will never have to make such a heartbreaking request. Donating money won't immediately fix the situation, but it is the easiest way to help.
