Things are still bad for Haiti, but perhaps not quite as bad as we were initially led to believe:

We initially posted (click here) a plea for help for the Haitian people, especially those in and around Port au Prince.  While the death toll may not be as high as they initially (or the Haitian government still reports), there is still help needed.  Some specific needs are pointed out in the following USA Today article:

Keep in mind while posting:
1) Please respond ON TOPIC to the article at hand.
2) Posts more than 4 weeks old are set to automatically save new comments for moderation - so your comment may not show up immediately if you're responding to an older post.
3) The "Spam Filter" is on - and randomly messages get caught in that filter. I have no control over which messages get caught in the spam filter and those that do must wait for me to mark them as "not spam." A message caught by the spam filter may show up for a moment, making you think it posted, and then disappear. Do not assume I have deleted your comment, it's probably just the spam filter and it will show up.
