Good point, and like you, I'm tired of the bleeding heart mentality, because, bottom line, we can no longer afford it. Granted, I gave a little money myself, but I have for a long time been saying we need to start taking better care of the people in our OWN country.

The similarity in the Haiti and Katrina events is, anytime the government gets involved, the whole situation becomes a freakin' logistical nightmare. How is it that we have all the technology in the world to kill as many people as possible, but seeing as how we're already on the ground in Haiti, why have we not been able to save more, and with all of this same technology, why is it so difficult to airlift supplies in? Honestly, to the government: Move over and let the military take care of it, at least they know how to make a decision.

Anyways, back to the original topic, a 6.1, to me, doesn't seem like an "aftershock." Granted, I have never been in an earthquake, but isn't that a quake all on its own?
