Death Match: Haiti vs Chili

Ok, I know I’m going upset some people, but that’s ok.  They need upsetting.

I’m curious if we’re going to see a barrage of commercials with Brad Pitt, Jake Gyllenhall, Meryl Streep, or Julia Roberts asking for us to hurry up and donate to save Chili?

Are we going to see a new “We are the World” video with everyone who ever knocked on MTV’s door, singing about Chili?

This is a slippery slope.  Once you pull out all the stops for one tragedy, you have to be prepared for the next, and possible BIGGER tragedy ahead.  If you beg and plead and milk every tear for one, what do you do for the next?  How do you top that?  How does anyone (whoever that is?) compare or rationalize when an all-star video or donation plea commercial is called for?

Does Chili matter as much as Haiti?
