It hurts. My thoughts go out to a country in which such massive suffering is shadowed by a potentially greater atomic one.
And then to the revolt in Libya, who I can’t help feel we’ve abandoned.
That wall the flood is pouring over – I learned yesterday that it is an anti-tsunami wall, construction of which finished last year. Guess they didn’t expect a once-in-a-century or -millennium event to happen just now.
Just today, after reading your post, I turned on the news and saw people walking past this 10 m flood wall and remembered having seen it in the past. It was significantly taller than buildings it was to protect and dwarfed the passersby. I remember thinking: “damn, that city is paranoid.”
