    did you read it?


    I do not think that there is such a thing as White Blood

    Perhaps white blood cells?

    never heard of any color of blood except red.
    True right, we all bleed red and we are all part of the human race. What's your take on why this case is drawing so much interest? It's not like there isn't senseless killing going on every day. Lots of black on black, white on white, black on white, and actually not much white on black killing going on in the USA these days. I'm sure Obama isn't going to phone the mothers of the two killed and 12 wounded Black on Black shooting that just occurred. Politically motivated phone calls? Yes I did read your links. I have a different take on most of life than you have.

    I do have questions about the return rate, which may be monitored through the fingerprinting?

    I do not think that we are going to be able to proceed with this project now because of the reactivation of cholera on the Haitian side. There are an expected 200,000 deaths this year. I could not recommend that any Haitian leave here to return while cholera is still active there so I will advise them not to co operate with this project.

    What a roller coaster, or series of from bad to worse events.

    Don't know what continues to keep you going, but hope you find enough of it on a daily basis to keep you going.

    Holy smoke!!

    Is that right?
    They expect 200,000 people to die this year from easily treatable cholera?

    Treatable and preventable with proper hygiene.
