Breaking news: Exiled right-wing dictator Baby Doc returns to Haiti in attempt to stop MRR’s Monday Photo Blog


January 17th, 2011 by

Damn, if we had been awake at 4am to receive the email from our Monday Photo Blog editor, Mark Murrmann, we would’ve been one of the first to report on Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier‘s unexpected return to his native country of Haiti which he ruled for 15 years before getting kicked out in 1986.

Mark was there, and sent this short report:
Hey guys…just as I was settling in to do the photo blog yesterday (and expecting a very quiet last day in Port Au Prince today), fucking Baby Doc returned. I haven’t had time to do anything on the blog… To make up for it, here is a photo of Baby Doc’s car rolling out of the airport. If that dude’s hand wasn’t there I would’ve gotten Jean-Claude’s face. Toooooooootal bummer.

Despite Duvalier (and probably the CIA as well) the photo blog appear later today, as scheduled.
