Mz has been informed by the NVC that he has to come up with another $500 for fees for more paper processing before K is given even an interview date (she's 6 years old!) for getting a visa to come to the U.S.
M has now been in Haiti for two full months. She and Mz have been a separated marriage because of these stupid rules for a little girl with parents who are in the U.S.
In the meantime the violence in the streets over President Preval arbitrarily extending his term as (like Bloomberg did and Giuliani wanted to do) is great -- people protesting are being shot. Everyone's sick, there's no medicine or medical care -- where ARE all those personnel who have made such big media noise about how they've gone to Haiti to provide medical care? They sure as hell ain't anywhere around in Port-au-Prince's soleils it seems. Mz is facing eviction because he just can't seem to make enough money to keep supporting everyone he's supporting.
This is a cold, dreary grey day. And I'm looking at never-ending stacks of papers written by indulged bigoted conservative guys who insist that what they FEEL is fact, and racism doesn't exist, it's just a bunch of whining by black people who are too lazy to work. While they've never had a job in their lives and their parents are paying for their education.
Then there's the BP Oil Blowout Catastrophe and their shameless campaign to wiggle out of liability -- even to hiring shills that National Public Rhetoric is all too happy to give mucho tiempo to say: "Poor poor poor BP! Do you know how much money they're losing every day that this leak goes on? You can't expect them to pay compensation and liabilities and all that too. They've already paid enough!" I am NOT making this up. I heard this on ATC last night.
