AN IDEA THAT’S SO SIMPLE, LIKE THE JITTERBUG, THAT IT’S PLUMB EVADED US: Donald Sensing wonders why we’re not dropping leaflets with instructions to people in the disaster zone:

Within short order, hundreds of millions of leaflets could be printed to be dropped over afflicted areas. The leaflets could explain what aid is on the way, where aid can be found, how to move out of dangerous areas, how to signal critical needs to overflying aircraft, how to sterilize water, basic trauma first aid, where medical help can be attained – the list is endless.

One of the best things leafleting would do is psychologically reconnect the cut off victims to their governments and restore their morale and will.

Read the whole thing. Sounds sensible to me.
