Yo, Man! President Aspirant of Haiti!

Ravaged by a devastating earthquake, shriveled by fallen buildings, wracking with fever and infections, its hospitals still filled with the dead, the almost dead and the recovering, Haiti is going to polls to elect its new President. The building that houses the electoral council still has fissures but the mood is upbeat and gung-ho. Among the thirty four people who have registered to run for president is a hip-hop star Wyclef Jean. Yo, man! If only more singers and songwriters were presidents.
