Five months after Haiti's devastating earthquake, the emergency response has finally secured a toehold: No one is lacking essential life-preserving services. But real recovery and reconstruction efforts have yet to begin, and there is a significant risk of further disaster. In more than 10 years of emergency relief work, I've never seen camps like those in Port-au-Prince. International standards defining what people are entitled to after a disaster are in no way being met. The Haitian camps are congested beyond imagination, with ramshackle tents standing edge to edge in every square foot of available space.

The state's top housing official, an opponent of Santa Ana's forceful crackdown on residential overcrowding, said Friday that city leaders should seek more low-cost living units rather than only restricting the number of tenants who can occupy existing residences. "I'm not unsympathetic to concerns about overcrowding," said Timothy L. Coyle, director of the California Department of Housing and Community Development.

The Anglo candidates for the three open City Council seats in Santa Ana are better-funded, and the election of a Latino in next week's election would be an upset. Many Santa Ana Latinos believe their voting power is diluted by at-large election of the City Council. A high proportion of non-citizens among Latinos also reduces the voting population.
