Re: Athena Kerry's Column: Not Supposed To Say It, But...Had It With Haiti?

I'm 100 percent with Kerry on Haitian overhype.

My question is where can anyone go to escape it? I've stopped watching the news channels but that's as much as I can do.

The major retail market that I work for has asked cashiers to inquire of patrons at the checkout line if they would like to donate to Haitian relief.

This weekend, the two NFL playoff games will intersperse commercial breaks with urgent requests to send funds to Haiti. (Watch here.)

The harder they push, the more resistant I become.
