"A pop star known for his bad boy antics on stage, Michel 'Sweet Micky' Martelly, became this earthquake-devastated country’s new president yesterday and urged Haitians to set aside their divisions and raise the country from rubble. The 50-year-old was all business as he was inaugurated before thousands of well-wishers on the lawn of the collapsed National Palace. He told his compatriots to respect laws, pay their taxes, and pitch in to ensure that Haiti moves forward after a massive earthquake last year flattened the capital and outer areas, killing more than 300,000 people and leaving hundreds of thousands more living in tents."
