I note the headlines declaring that looting in Haiti is now rampant. Is that what it is? At least to me, looting is what happens during riots when people take advantage of the chaos to steal and plunder. What’s going on in Haiti looks more like scavenging. Seeing what can be salvaged from the wreckage that might provide some food, water, or something else to aid the survival of life. No doubt there are those in the crowd, perhaps many of them, with criminal intent in mind, but if I was there as a survivor trying to survive I would be foraging for whatever I could find.
