    I hope everyone watches this. Like Randall Robinson says "I wish the media would stop reporting on Haiti being the poorest country in the western hemisphere and focus on why that is the case."....I'm paraphrasing, but you get the idea.

    Haitians elect president in delayed second round


    Haitians are voting in the delayed second round of the presidential election, amid an ongoing struggle to rebuild after last year's earthquake.

    On the ballot papers are pop star Michel Martelly, and academic and former first lady Mirlande Manigat.

    The poll is being held just two days after former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide returned from seven years in exile in South Africa.

    Final results are not expected until mid-April.....continued...
