UPDATE: A hurricane-like snowstorm tracking from the southeast (since when do hurricane-like snowstorms travel from the southeast?) is predicted to reach Pennsylvania in a couple of days. City of Pittsburgh residents should prepare for a couple of weeks without passable roads, or make immediate plans to visit relatives or friends residing in the suburbs.
UPPERDATE: The P-G's Mackenzie Carpenter, in a softer story, quotes a White House official:
"We're talking about an orphanage that was completely destroyed," said Tommy Vietor, a White House spokesman, who was in Haiti at the time of the airlift. "Anyone who had a heart" would have seen the logic behind letting these children in, he said.
The human heart is designed to work in association with a brain -- and logic is the brain's department.
