There are so many ways to describe what has happened in Japan. And it has happened to othr regions as well. "Mother nature" often takes a big bite againsy everybody. This has probably been going on all down through the ages but because of advanced communications we hear of every event with details and pictures that we did not get years ago.

    Whatever about that, it is a sad time for so many. It is a bit encouraging to hear and see how many are responding with aid to the victims. But why do that? Aren't people just disposable animals? That's what the "wise men" of the college campuses would have us to accept. I like what one heard recently. Someone commented, "The atheist better pray he is right." An ironical statement to be sure but shows the absrudity of such a position.
