Haiti.

I've been watching all day. A place so poor they ate dirt, and now this. Nothing to say about writing today, so I shall give you a favorite quote:

In the endless universe there has been nothing new, nothing different. What has appeared exceptional to the minute mind of man has been inevitable to the infinite Eye of God. This strange second in a life, that unusual event, those remarkable coincidences of environment, opportunity, and encounter… all of them have been reproduced over and over on the planet of a sun whose galaxy revolves once in two hundred million years and has revolved nine times already.

There has been joy.

There will be joy again.

-Alfred Bester, The Demolished Man
