Barbados, U.S.A., Haiti: Business as Usual?

Barbados Free Press harshly criticizes a cruise line for proceeding with business as usual in the midst of disaster as its passengers “continue to enjoy themselves at the ‘five pristine beaches’ leased from the Haitian government.”

    Agree with Barbados paper-can’t believe company would be so greedy to have their luxury liners stop at Haitian beaches when most of the country is in ruins.Many survivors probably are camped near these sites. Those who participate are just as calloused. Maybe the ship will have some mechanical failure-a/c goes out!
