  1. This has been one of the most tragic disasters that has happened this year. Perhaps the media hype created by Katrina has left the people of Pakistan hanging in the air. I think perosnally, that the victims of the earthquake deserve more international attention. Financially, Pakistan and the US is a no-contest.
