Marjorie, i want to get in with you on this. I know that she must be in agony, but the reality of the situation is:

We all, at times, direct our pain in the wrong direction.

File a lawsuit against the Nepalese Officials and enabling haitian authorities that are supporting the release of fecal untreated waste in waters and places that they should not.

I applaud Michele Montas for the good job she has done as a journalist and her role in raising social consciousness regarding free speech.

I believe Michele is wrong with this lawsuit against JC. We don't need anymore drama deterring us from problems such as a resolution to the next presidential election and this cholera

Ms. Montas should be investigated without
question! During her tenure at the UN she
was a disgrace always creating fights.

all I wanrt I want the beautifull haiti that it was when he was president.

I admire M. Montas but recently what this group have been done for haiti in order to lift the country face. I wish that Mrs Montas know that I was a teen when he was president and I enjoyed the country so much back then with 3 cruises au cap every week. there was no fear. the cpountry was beautiful.

I find it ironic that after her husband was murdered she decided to not only date Preval but adopt a child with him. One should really look into her past...sleeping with her husband's murderers?

It's funny how she plays the victim when everyone knows she knew what happened with Jean Dominique.
