The 21st Century has been one disaster after another.
It's a sad state of affairs, what's happening in the world today. What with al-Qaida threats again to New York subways, blasts in Bali, multiple hurricanes, floods, and Tsunamis, you can only say it's a really awful state the world is in. Now, people are being whipped into a frenzy over Avian Flu and the potential for 150 million people to be killed in a pandemic. As if we don't have enough trouble in the world these days.
Now this Pakistan earthquake, which has apparently killed 30,000 people. Details of the scale of the disaster continue to come in, and it's just terrible. The death count continues to mount. People are being asked to dig deep into their pockets, again, to try and help even more suffering people.
NBC News anchor Brian Williams blogs about it and moans about the state of the world. I couldn't blame him one bit.
