    some have it as high as 280.000. oddly, tsunami made bigger news in nyc, hk & london than in jakarta. while we packed supplies they were partying. life is cheap in indonesia…

    Thank you, Jeff, for the post.
    I haven’t had the time yet to investigate the reports on why Indonesia apparently reduced it’s number of deaths by some 74,000? I hope it is true regardless of the reason.
    Again, Jeff, thanks for bringing this topic back to the fore. Are you, dries and I the only ones who continue to care?
