So will the CNN team now split up and do 24 hours a day from Argentina, Haiti and Venezuela? Frankly, I’m just about Haiti’ed out on earthquake news. There’s only about a thousand ways to tell the message, and I think they are up to five thousand now.

Is San Fran getting nervous? I hear Danny Glover won’t go near there and is planning a vacation in Cuba.

Will Obama give aid to all 3 nations? Make the trip himself to show solidarity? Or will he be hiding in the White House after Coakley loses?

I sure hope this activity isn’t hopscotching around a Main Event on the New Madrid Fault.

That would make Katrina look like a picnic.

If a 7 magnitude earthquake hit the capital of Argentina it would be major news.

Effects of a 'big one' in CA and near the New Madrid fault.

If a big New Madrid quake his, a huge area of the US will be in major trouble.

The sadness in Haiti is not even started. I’m sorry you are already exhausted about their plight.

I feel great sadness for the suffering there. It’s not over. Hardly.

God is punishing them for their bad showing and Maradona’s coaching in World Cup qualifying.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This morning they took a break from 24/7 coverage of Haiti to do a segment bashing Sarah. Apparently the most important national news of the day is some former candidate that is now offering commentary on a rival cable news show. Compelling stuff, I tell ya. Tell me again why cnn’s ratings are in the dumper.
