A couple of blog notes for Feb 21, ’04

I’m tracking the current situation in Haiti as closely as possible, and I’m all to tempted to post updates here. However, “Haiti Pundit”:haitipundit.typepad.com has been doing a great job posting all the latest updates and news, so readers who want the skinny on the current stuff should head there. I get royally miffed from time to time about some inaccuracy I hear in the news, so I’ll probably make a comment from time to time, but I’m trying real hard to regain my focus on Toussaint.

To that end, I hope to have the next chapter of James done by tomorrow. Also, I have a very interesting post in the wings comparing Haiti’s historical troubles with those of the Irish during the potato famine. I’ll get that up ASAP.
