Quote of the day


“I have faith in God. But maybe the U.S. government could help a little more, too.”

-- Corinna Lankford, one of the U.S. Baptists being held in Haiti. The New York Times reports they're starting to plead for help. They must be desperate, if they're turning to the government, right?

(They've got a new lawyer, by the way. Their old one was fired after he allegedly tried to bribe officials into letting them go, the Times reports.)

Two of ten Americans who were arrested while trying to bus children out of Haiti without proper documents or government permission, Silas Thompson, second from left, 19, of Twin Falls, Idaho, and Carla Thompson, 53, of Meridian, Idaho, fourth from right wearing sandals, are followed by journalists upon their arrival to court in Port-au-Prince, Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2010. Nine of the ten Americans were brought to court for a fourth time for questioning. (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)
