By the way, speaking of the media, has anyone noticed the quality of reporting on Haiti? The ability to communicate the magnitude of the suffering to the United States, the round-the-clock coverage, on every network, the paper news, the internet news, NPR. It's almost painful to watch, so I read most of it online in ways I can digest. But considering the failure of news organizations regarding the ongoing turmoil in Iran, it's good that they know that they can do this, when they want to.
Also, dig my use of the question mark to hedge in the post title.
