I don’t remember which news program told this story, but among the first doctors arriving in Haiti was a plane load of doctors from Miami. And the reporter who told the story said that 20 minutes after landing, they were treating the wounded in a United Naitons makeshift hospital at the airport.
20 minutes! Now that is getting things done!
