"A Hungry Man is an Angry Man … "

Beginning between 11:00 PM and Midnight, Monday, 18 January.

Too late…went to the Carrefour Feuille Lycee w/Virginia Task Force 2 but there were no survivors. We were a few days too late. Mostly kids.

Saw all kinds of nationalities looking for bodies today. US. Koreans. French…I suspected we were too late…no crowds in front of buildings.

Some one told me that Bill Clinton visited Haiti’s General Hospital. Good
move. That’s where the less fortunate go for treatment.

Some artist friends came by and asked me to change $US20 into Haitian currency. They said street vendors don’t want US Currency; only local.

Members of our band RAM were volunteering yesterday with the search and rescue missions … Time is running out for live buried victims

Once the search and rescue folks stop finding live buried victims,they stop
looking. If they found some yesterday, they’ll look for some today

Banks aren’t opened yet. I’m hoping it’s only a question of security. There is no  sense of local government. Most Haitians are sleeping outside

Is the aid really going 2 get 2 the people? We’re looking 4 live bodies…”Did you bring food?” Can u blame someone who’s hungry 4 looting?

I don’t get the feeling that there’s a plan…I hope “THE PLANNING COMMITTEE” isn’t the “same ol’ folks”..been there, done that.

No sense of who is going to lead this next phase. There had better be some changes. Better figure out how to get food and water to people real quick.

When people are hungry they don’t realize that they’re getting unruly. The bad apples then take advantage.

A hungry man is an angry man. A hungry mob is an angry mob.

One of my staff has been here since Tuesday working day and night…left 10 minutes ago–just came back. “The streets aren’t good…Thieves.”

You can’t call them “relief” efforts yet. The ones who aren’t on the streets are living in broken homes pretending to get on with their lives

No true sense of what’s going on yet. Some have gotten used to living with the smell of rotting corpses.

AOL says corpses are everywhere. That’s last weeks news. The only bodies we smelled yesterday were under rubble.

Many people are getting on busses trying to get to the provinces or the DR. I sense more urgency today than in past days.
