The BBC might need to pull their socks up re. relations with advertisers:
This is “medieval” in too many of the wrong ways.
Further commentary and interpretation aside: Readers are encouraged to contribute to Haiti earthquake relief – in the “modern medievalist” temper, combining a temporally-universal human compassion with electronic banking and Web 2.0, speed and rapidity of networking-connections. Tell others.
Some rapid links to charities – I’m doing this rather than providing my own prejudiced preferred list – tonnes more c/o any news site and Google:
OK – some prejudiced preferred usual suspects anyway:
- International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
- Médecins sans frontières
- Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund (c/o Wyclef Jean)
ADDENDUM: Readers are also (belatedly) directed towards John Fleming‘s fine piece, From Port-au-Prince to Lisbon.
