Holidays in a coma (stole this from Beigbeder)

God, this is just as horrible as the Tsunami was five years ago. Why do catastrophes like this always hit the poorest regions of the world? On the other hand, I guess that this is part of the reason why they are poor.

And the most horrible is - my friends have left to Carribean today in the morning. For holidays. To spend their money on five star hotels (are there any left?) and basking in the sun. That constant clash of rich and poor, catastrophe and extravaganza, emergency and abundance. Out world is far from healthy....

My sympathy goes to people of Haiti.
