30 March 2010 - Only 3 percent of Haitians own their own car, so if someone is traveling more than walking distance, they often ride cheap, wildly decorated busses known as "tap-taps." Here Planet Money's Adam Davidson explores the artistry -- and economic theory -- behind Haitians' preferred mode of transportation. (Produced, Photographed and Edited by Travis Fox/FRONTLINE)

    was working across the water in Long Island City, New York when the things hit the world trade towers and did happen/ IT was not a conspiracy and it did happened. I saw it with my owns as the Twin Towers went down and felt it in my life. I got home in Far Rockaway by car eventual from work and a Nigerian brother was in a state of shock. He came from the train . subway on the way home at the spot of the towers for a moment and came out from the subway; and saw bodies hitting the ground like watermelons. HE was screaming carpet bomb them repeatedly to me . He was in shock. It did not hit me fully until a few years after. I lost my job and my family ran to Georgia. I had my life turned upside down and saw things u normally only see in horror movies.

Heads up: the shoutbox will be retiring soon. It’s tired of working, and can’t wait to relax. You can still send a message to the channel owner, though!
