Your tax dollars at work

Speaking to an American audience on C-SPAN, the Haitian ambassador to the United States sketched an optimistic future for Port-au-Prince -- a smaller, well-built city to replace the teeming, chaotic and shoddily built sprawl of almost three million people that was virtually wiped away by the Jan. 12 earthquake.

"There is a silver lining," Raymond Joseph said. "What was not politically possible, was done by the earthquake. We will rebuild differently . . .

"The future of Haiti will be very different from the past."

You do realize who's going to pay for that, right?
