Ann Curry on the NBC Nightly News just said that Japan is suffering a tragedy like "no other country" has ever had to face.
Now, I feel horrible for the people of Japan. It is unthinkable, what they are going through. But just more than six years ago, Indonesia lost about 250,000 people (yes, that's a quarter-million) in the Boxing Day tsunami. So I can think of at least one other country that has had to face the same horror.
I really hope no one who was in Indonesia on that terrible day had to hear tonight's broadcast.
