- Ex-Fugees singer Wyclef Jean is considering running for president of Haiti, according to a letter his family sent to the media. The news comes just a few months after Jean's Yele Haiti Foundation, which helped raise funds for survivors of January's devastating earthquake, was criticized for its allegedly sloppy book keeping.

- First it was Artscape. Then it was Whartscape. Now Baltimore is gearing up for a celebration in honor of hometown rock weirdo Frank Zappa. The event will take place in September when Charm City unveils a statue of the late rock hero. No cussin'!

Haitians are grateful for what Wyclef has done for Haiti -- that he always has talked positively about the country in the American press. But running for President is quite another thing. First, he doesn't even fulfill the constitutional requirements to run for President, and second, he has absolutely no experience. His work with his non profit foundation Yele is poorly manage to be charitable. The discussion in the US press about him being a viable candidate makes a joke out of our country -- would Americans elect Ludacris for President? We need someone serious to put our country back together. We need a real, tested leader.
