Last night I was showing CountryWatch to some students and looked at the Culture and Arts section within the Haiti report. There we saw the following message: "Content to come!" I don't know how long that message has been there, how long it might remain or how common it is throughout the database, but it strikes me as unprofessional. This is one more reason why I'm less and less impressed CountryWatch.
