When it first came to light last fall, the "Hospice Six" affair was regarded by most people here as a minor impropriety. Half a dozen nurses at the Hospice of St. Peter's had been accepting leftover morphine from the families of patients who had died. They had been storing it in a supervisor's unlocked desk drawer, then giving it to other terminally ill patients in emergencies, when pharmacies were closed. The nurses kept no written records. Dead patients' drugs are supposed to be destroyed.

Rural advocates for years have urged more attention for the medical needs of sparsely settled areas, the small towns and farms where a fourth of America's people live.

The association, a lobbying force on Capitol Hill, is a major backer of comprehensive rural development legislation.

President Obama promised swift delivery of rescue assistance and humanitarian aid to the island nation of Haiti this morning in the wake of a devastating earthquake there that has left hundreds dead and many more missing. Haitians will have the "full support" of the U.S. as they work to rescue those trapped and to gather food, water and medicine in the crucial early hours of the recovery, the president said. "This is a time when we are reminded of the common humanity we all share," Obama told reporters in the White House Diplomatic Reception Room.
