Hard to believe it's only been a month since the Indian Ocean Tsunami. Based on media coverage and the general "feel" of things, it may as well have happened a year or two ago. The total death toll now stands at 280,000.
BBC News has some good in-depth Tsunami coverage.
The biggest thing that has recently occured relative to the Tsunami is Hot97's outrageous and unacceptable bit making fun of the Tsunami and survivors. Rather than go into all the details, here's a link to Sepia Mutiny which has been following this well. There have been suspensions of the radio hosts involved in putting the bit together. They're also donating a week's worth of pay to relief efforts. But just the thought of these fools getting to keep their jobs after this shit...ugh. Plus, as usual with corporations and bigwigs, the apologies offered are half-assed and don't even come close to being adequate.
Anyways, take a moment and recall what you were thinking this time last month.
It's the same thing people in affected areas are still dealing with.
