Bad news for Haiti

I don't know if you've heard about this earthquake that destroyed Haiti - but there have since been some horrific discoveries since the destruction. Including:
-- Devastation: Haiti's art museums and galleries suffer serious damage as a result of the recent earthquake. (Los Angeles Times)
The Los Angeles Times needs to learn about perspective. The art that was affected in the gallery is bad, but ... this is almost as bad as when the City of Atlantis sunk - that's how screwed Haiti is.

But fear not, Haiti, help is on the way:

John Travolta has flown his own Boeing 707 jet to Haiti. The jet carried medical supplies and doctors, as well as a crew of Scientologists. to perform "healing". John Travolta's wife, Kelly Preston, accompanied him on the journey. I'm sure the his intentions are good, but this smacks of opportunism: carving out another territory for Scientology using the dubious opportunity presented by a huge disaster. (It's called "Casualty Contact", and the NYPD was having none of it after 9/11)

The only problem is that Haiti needs as many doctors as possible, and let's face it: Scientologist healers are not doctors.

Haiti says: Merci, Travolta. Retournez aux LA, si vouz plait.
