A Grim Report
News of the mudslide in Leyte, in the Philippines. I'm struck again at how natural disasters in the Third World are often so much more devastating than they are in the First because of poverty and lack of infrastructure. And how there is still a 'Third World Within' the First world, as witnessed during the Katrina catastrophe.
