Ricot Dupuy, director and station manager of Radio Soleil, checks in on Haiti, from the upcoming November 28th presidential elections to the violent cholera protests that erupted earlier this week.
I believe that the elections in Haiti will be very important _ although one should not expect too much of it _ and I wish that they will help to address the massive displaced population issue, provide ways to allow the reconstruction projects to continue and will allow the Haitian society as a whole to create a comprehensive/working system that would help to govern this troblesome contry.
initially i was very much against the idea of wyclef jean running for president in haiti. you know, he's unqualified, knows nothing about governing etc..but now i realize, if he's not president of haiti, he's going to start making more of his "music" and the world doesn't need that. things are bad enough in the world and especially the music world and more 'clef "music" will just add to the sadness. can we throw his hat back in the ring somehow? for the good of our ears?
