Cooper: What's happening in Shady?
Cooper: Ya, Shady... you know, in the world.
Reilly: He means Haiti.
Me: Oh dear.
Cooper and Reilly's school has been collecting money for Haiti relief. I'm certain this is the source of his question.

Now he's happily munching fishy crackers and playing bingo with his sister. Coop has no idea how lucky he is. Someday, he'll understand. I pray.
