    Thing is, are you going to spend your resources to save one or two trapped while hundreds of thousands need efforts to keep them safe and alive? The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.

    Many not trapped are also in grave danger if the basics cannot be restored for the masses.

    It is a tough call but probably the right one.

    Didn't they just find a newborn today? The baby was only 25 days old.

    So the Haiti corrupt government called off the search and rescue is it because they got fat and lazy from eating all those Martha Stewarts Hearty Casseroles the liberals sent over there?.

    After hearing the story of a woman in her 80's being rescued just yesterday, I think the searches should continue anywhere there might be a chance that someone could still be alive. There are pockets of safety and if there's a chance that someone might be there and someone knows of someone who could be in a certain area, it's just my opinion, but I think those areas should continue to be searched. If my relative or loved one was under a collapsed building and I thought they might be alive, I would dig with my hands until my fingers were worn off before I would give up. I'm sure those in Haiti feel the same.

    My heart goes out to the survivors. May God bless them. And let us learn from this disaster. Lessons: 1) We must make more of our buildings here in Utah quake-proof, 2) Socialism causes poverty and reduces capital available for private owners to bring buildings into compliance with earthquake standards, 3) Always be prepared for an emergency, and 4) We are all brothers and sisters and must sacrifice to help one another.
