Baby Doc's Back

This doesn't sound like good news:
Jean-Claude Duvalier, the once-reviled dictator of Haiti known as Baby Doc, made a surprise return to this country Sunday evening, ending almost a quarter-century of exile and sending out shockwaves of speculation over his motives and intentions.
For those unfamiliar with Baby Doc and his dad, Papa Doc, this ruling family has been responsible for vaulting Haiti into the 21st century at the forefront of... well, nothing because the two spent what little there was of Haiti's wealth on themselves as they killed thousands of political opponents. The U.S. Air Force flew Baby Doc to France in 1986, and everyone hoped that would be the last we'd hear from him.

No doubt many Haitians are now saying, "Damn, I wish we would have let Wyclef Jean run for president!"
