Messed Up

Earthquakes can be terrible things. There is nothing you can do about them. Even the most developed and prepared countries cannot possibly stop them, look at Kobe in Japan... However they seem to affect the poor most of all as is the case with yesterday's earthquake in Java, Indonesia which is esitmated to have claimed more than 3000 lives. Just what that region needs less of... Coming 18 months after the tsunami killed 100 000 people in Sumatra.

What's messed up you ask? Our local TV news website is leading with Brad and Angie's new baby... The 3000 deaths get third billing. Now that's messed up!

San Nakji for President!

Man, I was just thinking the same thing!!!

The earthquake was horrible. Now they are saying 5000 deaths. *sighs*

It's so sad what the media finds "important" these days.

I'm on vacation in Kansas (yea, Kansas) and not paying attention to the news, but I did get wind of the earthquake and NOT of the baby which is a small sign of good things. Brangelina. ick.
