I don’t have anything to add about the horrific earthquake that hasn’t already been said elsewhere.

But, I’ve added a donation button to the right sidebar for Doctors Without Borders, an excellent non-profit group already working in Haiti when the quake hit. They are apparently operating out of makeshift clinics in the absence of functioning hospitals. Click on the button to help; other donation options are listed here.

*update* Highly Allochthonous explains the tectonics of the quake.

    Thanks, Tim. I donated this morning, but it’s hard to feel like it’ll do much good considering the magnitude of the problem…

    Thanks from me, too, Alex. I donated and passed the link on to many others.
