Happy Monday, and MLK Day, my ninjas!

Now, right to business: everyone reading this should stop – right now – and go donate some money to disaster relief efforts in Haiti. I’m not really sure that it matters who you give the money to, so long as you give it – but since this is an architecture site, I’ll suggest you head over to Architecture for Humanity. When things settle down and this tragic natural disaster starts to fade from the 24 hour cable news channels, I trust that AfH will be in Haiti, hard at work trying to rebuild.
