Alfred MentorCertains Haïtiens éprouvent un malin plaisir à prendre les mots à contresens. L'oubli aidant, bien souvent, ils s'enferment dans un dédale de contradictions qui perdurent. La rue Camille Léon est remplacée par la rue Caméléon. Cette modification, au fil du temps, reste collée à la réalité. Certains vont jusqu'à se demander s'il n'y avait pas dans un passé plus ou moins récent des caméléons dans la zone.Le nom du cochon marron immolé à la cérémonie du Bois-Caïman se change en cochon'' grimel,'' une espèce de couleur grise importée des USA pour remplacer nos porcs atteints de peste porcine, une épidémie venue de la République Dominicaine. Comme formule pour combattre la maladie, les experts internationaux avaient suggéré de les abattre complètement. Nos braves paysans, malins par nature, ont pu mettre un bon nombre à l'abri de cette mesure radicale. Lorsqu'on demande à un haïtien, pourquoi le cochon indigène a une gueule beaucoup plus longue que celle du cochon gris communément appelé '' grimel, '' importé en Haïti?

Last Sunday night event, July 11, the special dinner and book signing with the Honorable Mrs. Pascal Trouillot, was a huge success. The event was organized by Mr. Molton Michel to promote the release of Tome II of the "Encyclopédie Biogrophique D'Haiti". Pastor Robin Bazil blessed everyone in attendance to launch the event. The Haitian national anthem was sung by Rev. Woodler, and the American national anthem by Vanessa Bellevalle. A truly stars and personalities studded event presented by two of the best MCs in the business, Bob Lemoine and Homere Jean.
Music entertainment was sporadically interjected and dispersed to the audience by a series of talented artists; The saxophonist Jean Mark Montrose delighted the audience with tune like "the cri de mon ame", the gospel singer Lakencia Delsoin entertained the crowd with song like "satan pa ka kimbem", and the lady with a vibrant voice Lise Vieux brought everyone on their feet exclaiming what a great song, she has a nice voice. She sung, most appropriately, one of her latest compositions "Haiti est à nous".
They were four speakers with different political affiliation and different ethnic background that graced the podium that evening. Each with vivid and eloquence presented a comprehensive analysis of Haiti actual situation.

Mr. Wismick St Jean, businessman, Haitian political analyst, depicted the grim effects of the earth quake on both the population and the governing system. A nation, since inception, besieged by the world community, punished for succeeding in becoming a free Black and independent nation.

Dr. Barbara talked about of her harsh childhood on the street Washington DC and how through perseverance she became a doctor. She underlined the value of education coupled with good parenting.

The West Palm Beach republican chairman Mr. Sid Dinerstein talked about value, family value and role model. He delighted the audience with his favorite spelling bee Indian championship story. How the first Indian boy became a champion. And, consequently, how his picture came to adorn the wall of many other Indian boys who in turn became champion themselves, a fascinating story.

Mr. Chandler Finley, Board Certified International Lawyer, the son of a prominent businessman, reaffirmed the notion of structuring, fundamental structuring as prerequisite to any developing nation. He explained the importance of laying down a good and sound foundation for the rebuilding of Haiti.

Then, the moment that they all came for arrived, the apparition on the podium of the Honorable Mrs. Ertha Pascal Trouillot. The audience came alive as everyone stood on their feet clapping hands and applauding generously. The Honorable proceed immediately in thanking everyone in attendance, most particularly Mr. Molton Michel, the coordinator and promoter of that
