Writes Greg Privette:

Last night I was watching the show “Anthony Bourdain’s, No Reservations” on the Travel Channel. I like the show because he travels to foreign countries and has someone local show him around. Usually he eats at neighborhood restaurants, street vendors, etc., and normally has someone invite him to their home for a typical family dinner. I like it because it shows everyday people in these countries living everyday lives. For last night’s episode he was in Haiti. A lot of the area was still pretty devastated from the recent earthquake. At one point he and his guide wound up across the street from the building that was the former residence of the various rulers of Haiti. Sort of the Haitian white house. It was mostly in shambles. The best part was his guide telling him that during the earthquake, as the building began to crumble, the people in the area, even in their terrified and disoriented state of mind, actually stopped and vigorously applauded and cheered as it collapsed.
