: On NBC News tonight, an ITN reporter went to a town that was gone, simply gone: only the mosque left standing, not a single soul left. He couldn’t find out the name of the town and said it didn’t matter now anway.

: Later… Ann Curry is in south Asia reporting on the tragedy for Dateline. I might have dreaded that; as nice as Curry is, she can drive me nutty with her theatrical concern. But she’s doing a very good job here. The tragedy is so apparent that there is no need to amplify it for TV.

    Just read one of the more horrible stories about this whole situation – where people are selling the corpses of people found in certain areas to family members.

    Thanks for the link, Tom. I had not read that one before. I’m running out of adjectives for this tragedy.

    What is your take on Richard Quest anchor newsreader at CNN and his tsunami reporting? Is he theatrical too?
