I'm curious: who is "Eugene Seagraves", and what news service is "Rooters"  (It's certainly not "Reuters".)

>There was never a public bus service 

I don't know, but I recall seeing big blue/white lots-of-big-windows buses going up and down Route Panamericaine years ago.

Airport improvements have been ongoing for years and years.  The Champs de Mars was greatly improved during the 1970's - 1980's.  Compare roads from the 1960's to the 1970's and 1980's ... they were greatly improved.  I wonder who Mr. Seagraves is implying improved them and what that has to do with what.

I'm wondering on what basis Mr. Seagraves makes these statements.  I watched as Aristide's Tabarre home was being built.  Seems pretty opulent - particularly on a comparative basis - to me.  Aristide did appear frequently in public ... back in the 1980's ... Surely from Mr. Seagrave's name, he is not Haitian and does not live in Haiti.
