Abe and Joe take a brief tour through the bloody history of Haiti, and discuss the obligations that the developed world has -- or should have -- toward the undeveloped world.
The calamity in Haiti has made one thing abundantly clear -- when a nation has been at the business end of colonialism for centuries, it's that much more difficult to react when disaster strikes. And when, like Haiti, a nation has the temerity to aspire to self-government by people of African descent, the disparity is even more striking.

This selection below represents just a few of the many protest songs of the decade.
