is that MC Hammer?

I get it.  Every group has its asshole, and we've found one in Haiti.  But regardless of his motivation, the fact that he isn't being monkey-stomped into a blue and white stain on the pavement, or being used to beat out the fire, by the tens hundreds of thousands of people we've helped, says everything I need to know about Haitian gratitude.
