Some Thoughts About Haiti…

I don’t have anything new to add to the mix, but I’m preoccupied with this tragedy right now and I wanted to post about it.

My friend talented friend Bett Williams often blogs about Voudoun and the Orishas. Her blog today focuses on Maya Deren’s amazing Divine Horsemen: The Living Gods of Haiti.

There are many organizations through which you can help out, but I thought this texting program was interesting: if you want to donate money but are a little short right now, the State Dept. has set up a way to donate via text message. Text “Haiti” to 90999 and a donation of ten dollars will be added to your next phone bill and forwarded to the Red Cross.

Also, Dear Pat Robertson: Fuck You In Your Stupid Face.

Go ahead and say it aloud. It’s fun.

    It’s the most evil people of all who say such harmful, stupid garbage in the wake of tragedy (or even say it at all!). Thanks for posting this.

    Dear Pat Robertson: FUCK YOU IN YOUR STUPID FACE and UP YOUR RIGHT WING CONSERVATIVE, HATE FILLED ASS.! (that is fun to say, but why do people still listen to this man?)

    Good post. We’re feeling weird and guilty about going to the Dominican Republic next week for vacation. :(

    im so glad you posted this; the red cross text was my status on FB yesterday. what an easy way to contribute. as for pat robertson…did you watch the clip of him saying those things? i didnt know whether to laugh or cry when i saw it. he actually quoted the devil, and then kept saying “true story, true story” like he was there or something. wow.
