Just because Aristide, x-president of Haiti, made the comment that makes it right:
Those were his words! if what is happening in Haiti is comparable to what is
happening the rest of the word, then Haiti cannot be the poorest nation.
What do I say: then the x-president is wrong, and you should tell him that.
