Haitian Earthquake Relief

The devastation continues. But there are still simple ways to pitch in. Scott Harrison of Charity Water is asking that all current donations be made straight to two affiliated partner charities. Wyclef Jean suggests texting "Yele" to 501501 to automatically donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund. It will be charged to your cell phone bill.

Left ear popped and I've been walking around for the past three days with what felt like sea water stuck in there. The best time to take care of something like this is earlier than later, and the best time to do so is on a crappy weather day filling the streets with poke your eye out umbrellas. A quick trip to the drugstore and then a quick trip upstairs to the doctor and I have a remedy in hand - it only drives home Michael MooreMichael Moore
