Earthquake! Recipe for Disaster in Chile
By now, everyone is aware of the devastating earthquake that rocked the South American nation of Chile earlier this week claiming many lives. I was just surprised to see far less coverage of this disaster than I did following the destruction in Haiti from its quake. It just bothers me when I listen to newscasters indicate that Chile is richer and more prepared than its northern neighbor. I would like to know when our world priorities got screwed up. I thought Chile should be commended for its social progress, not penalized. Let's help these poor souls in their time of need - with equal enthusiasm!
