10 months after the earthquake, many have forgotten Haiti.  To help us be more mindful of that The Big Picture has some amazing photographs of what life is like there now.  But as you see the cities of tents, read today's news that they are bracing for what might be Hurricane Tomas by the time it gets to them.  There is lots that designers could be doing to improve situations in places like these and we've been hearing more and more about it this semester from people like Werthmann and Jelacic.  Add in a current hurricane-prone project in St Croix and a recent look at the coastal zones in Cape May, and it is increasingly clear that there is a call to answer.
