CNN was on when I came home yesterday. Wolf Blitzer was interviewing the Haitian Ambassador to the U.S. and asked him possibly the most moronic question I have ever heard: Are the buildings in Haiti able to withstand this kind of earthquake?

I wanted to jump through the TV and punch him in his stupid mouth. People in Haiti regularly eat DIRT to stave off hunger. WTF do you think, Blitzer‽

And I know some people aren't fans of Brangelina, etc. (or the fact that they publicly pledge their support instead of just giving it), but it's nice to see they're willing to jump in. We can, too.
