Something to keep in mind as most reporting remains bewitched by sanitized versions of the latest crisis. An excerpt:
After six months of living first under bedsheets and towels, and now inside torn, sweltering and soaked tents suitable at best for weekend camping, the stress in Haiti’s crowded and unsanitary camps is beginning to grow. Normally patient Haitians, already traumatized by the massive loss of life in January’s unprecedented earthquake, are starting to lose it.
If we think it’s hot and miserable here in the New York area, just imagine.
