A report on today's election preparation from Les Cayes

The orphanage, Pwoje Espwa, posts regular photos and updates on the web and this showed up this morning...

National elections are taking place today. There are several senate seats that need to be filled (one for our area). Fanmi Lavalas (ex-President Jean Bertrand Aristide's political party) will not be in the race due to not being able to satisfy all eligibility requirements. Seems he's the only one who can sign off on Lavalas candidates and he has not done so. As a result of this, there have been rumors of manifestations that will disrupt the election process. To be on the safe side, the Haitian government closed schools on Friday before the election and on Monday right afterwards. It has also asked that people stay home except to vote. Ominous? Yes! So far things have been quiet. Let's hope that they stay that way.

Did Hillary vote before leaving? How about the 9000 U.N. Tank-driving, gun-waving Santas, did they vote in their new land they came to liberate from the unruly natives?

Like G.W. Bush said on 29 Feb 2004..."democracy in working in Haiti".

How much did this latest bad taste joke cost?

Is this "aid" part of the $300M "stimulus package", Mrs. Primeminister so gratefully said was way beyond her highest dreams?

Elections without electors - that's some real high tech stabilization success. We is mighty thankful sir. Mèsi! Thank you! Yessir!
