    In limbo? He died while dreaming and didn't wake up?

    Yup! Apparently he died while in a dream within a dream.

    Hopefully this will provide CNN with opportunity to focus a little less on Mr. Jean's star power and 'exclusives', and a great deal more on what the New York post pointed-out in their article on Tuesday. They don't simply owe it to the people in Haiti, but to the numerous correspondents who have put so much genuine concern & effort into helping the country.

    Swim Wyclef, Swim!......The sharks are after you! As we say in Haiti, "Naje" to get out alive my brother! Much love and respect, and stay safe, please. Its not worth your life though. If the Haitian people don't realize how honored and privileged they should feel to have a quality man like you, then I hate to say it because I am Haitian too and love our country as much as you, but, you'll have to just leave it alone bro. Maybe its our destiny to live as we do and to always go after crap when gold is within our reach. You are gold my brother. If they reject you, then go work for some other country/people, don't continue working in Haiti, they're just using you like they continue to use all of us Diaspora getting all this money from us every year, meanwhile we can't even take a simple vacation there like other caribbean people do in their countries. Many people from other countries have expressed how they wish they had a Wyclef Jean. You are loved and appreciated my brother. But its too dangerous. Might be best to get out. Their loss/your gain. honestly. Save yourself and get out. I love Haiti but I don't want to lose you because of stupid Haiti.
