She has a point…

From the LA Times:

God, the treacle and carrying on from perfect strangers as the first anniversary draws near. I would not hold their tears against anyone in America if I thought they gave a rip about even three or four of the very nice people who got squished to bits when 20,023 souls were snuffed out by a quake on January 26, 2001, in India.

Or if they cared about the 1,100 people drowned and trampled to death in Nigeria on January 27 as they fled down two muddy canals to escape horrific explosions at a huge munitions depot.

Don’t recall those tragedies very well, do you?

You see, these disasters happened to foreigners. I don’t recall them getting more than a few seconds on the networks. You’d think that here in Los Angeles, in the case of the Indian quake, we’d at least make a mental note: 20,000 dead, 7.7 earthquake, get more bottled water.
