The Haitian government attempts to hand out food in Port-au-Prince and it doesn't go well. We'll show you the video. Plus, we're tracking your tax dollars used for the stimulus. $54 million for the Napa Valley's Wine Train. A senator calls it a "misplaced priority." But is it? We're keeping them honest.

    @Starr thanks will look forward to your response. I need to look into it too.

    The three repts on stimulus projects show the complexity but the projects come out as being useful, sensible, and successful in job creation. No 8b not enough to build highspeed rail network.

    Oh that was 8hrs of electricity a day before the earthquake.

    the disorder at food distribution, still many people in need of food.

    Even so 65 days, and finding the young girl after 15 days miraculous, I agree w Gary Tuchman makes me think of the many others who could be awaiting rescue.

    Good night Isabel, Starr, good night everyone.

    I read you remarks re: SCOTUS. Although strongly worded, i think you make a good point. I know i am concerned about this ruling too.

    This weeklong segment on where our stimulus dollars are going is very interesting and informational. It is intriguingly infromative- thanks for digging deep and checking the facts. I'm not seeing this on other news stations

    @LisaL from Canada: I also really liked this format as well, with live reporting from Haiti mixed with other daily topics. I would love to see this continued for quite awhile, because we all know the recovery in Haiti doesn't have a forseeable end

    @ Kathy, yes America should immediately begin pouring tropical hammocks from current military providers and army surplus depots which contain mosquito netting into Haiti to help provide temporary shelter.

    It seems that no one is able to "effectively deliver" relief to the population.
    Not the UN, nor the Haitian government...Why is that?

    one of the things that most people seem to agree on is that rebuilding Haiti is definitinely long-term.

    how to keep awareness on important issues is not always easy. i hope everyone here who is interested in watching Haiti's progress plays their part and keeps the issues alive - the media responds to what people want to see - so if we want to continue to follow Haiti, it is also the responsibility of the viewers to make their voice heard.

    I was just listening to the stimulus package review which I think it is a good idea to research. On the fast rail I think the way the presentation was presented was disingenuous. The money was not going to cover the whole project. The project is necessary for our environment and ease of living. The rest of the world have great rail connections. I remember getting off the comfortable, easily access train going to see Pisa and getting back on to see Assisi.
    Also the highway system that Eisenhower started didn't get built in a year. It was not finished until the 1970"s.
    In all the news there seems to be an attempt to present both sides with frivolous statements. Yesterday the stimulus money was not correct because some who got help were the poor without jobs!!

    Given the fact that very little food aid has been delivered, the Haitian people have in mass acted with a great deal of dignity after many of them having no food, no shelter, and no electricity for 2 weeks. American's wouldn't fare any better in self-restraint.
