  • So, Americans Urged to Leave Haiti

    WASHINGTON (AP) - All non-government Americans in Haiti should leave while transportation is still available, the State Department said Thursday, citing the violent uprising.

    Peace Corps personnel are being withdrawn, and the government has authorized the departure of family members and non-emergency employees of the U.S. Embassy on a voluntary basis, the department said.

    Separately, the government said it was sending a military team to assess the security of the embassy in light of the uprising against President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

    The embassy has imposed a curfew from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. on its staff and their family members. Thursday's warning said the curfew hours may change.

    "American citizens should be aware that the U.S. Embassy has prohibited travel by its staff outside of Port-au-Prince," the warning said.

    It added that the embassy's ability to provide emergency services to American citizens outside the capital city was limited and had "drastically decreased in recent days due to numerous random roadblocks set up by armed groups."

    Meanwhile, Secretary of State Colin Powell said the United States and other countries had agreed to present a plan to the Haitian government and opposition leaders for settling Haiti's political crisis.

    The plan was expected to be delivered to the two sides on Friday.

          Hey, we've got our apartment. We ripped up the floors, pipes, wiring, and having everything completely redone.

          Yeah.



          Well, he's an ex free-base addict, and he's trying to turn around, and he needs a place to stay for a couple of months.


          Now that I have kids, I feel a lot better having a gun in the house.


          I thought about it, and even though it's over, I'm going to tell my wife about the afffair.


          I don't know the guy, but I've got two kidneys and he needs one, so I figured..


          Normally I wear protection, but then I thought, "When am I gonna make it back to Haiti?"

            "Leave Haiti" is just good general advice.

              I knew I didn't get the whole quote right.

              Loved that skit.

                Who in their right mind would want to go to Haiti? I'd rather live in Hayti Missouri.
