Wailing and gnashing of teeth - for white people

I was sitting in O'Hare airport watching CNN on Monday, waiting for my flight back to Boston. They were reporting on the earthquake that struck Indonesia and engulfed Sri Lanka and many other countries with tidal waves. Last I saw the Sri Lankan death toll was something like 10,500, and has probably gone up. CNN was reporting on the deaths of "11 Britons". And on the fate of tourists. Asia is a tourist destination, after all. People don't actually live there, do they?

Someday I will meet the evil fucking bastard who decides on how these stories should be reported, and I will drive a steel spike through his skull. Not that I am bitter.
