Two extremes

On the one hand, this is a great day for democracy as Yushchenko seems to be on his way to victory in Ukraine. But that story has been overshadowed by the horrible devastation and unbelievable bodycount in the Indian Ocean after yesterday's earthquake and tsunamis. The last body count I heard was over 11,000 and expected to go up. Thailand, alone, has suffered over 5,000 dead.

Here's a vivid account of what a tsunami is like as told by a fellow near Sri Lanka.

More on the disaster can be found here and here.

As for the Ukrainian election, this site was interesting.
