Best line out of Haiti this week

The picture of a Haitian government worker being pulled by an Israeli team out of the Customs Office, 125 hours after it collapsed around him, featured prominently in the JC this week - and around the world. Nahum Barnea, one of Israel's most senior journalists, was there when he was rescued. According to his Yediot column this week, the man's first question on emerging from the rubble was,

"where's my cellphone?"

I can only assume - or at least I would hope - this was followed up by 'Where's my wife', 'how's my house' and 'am I going to live?'....
