i had this whole post about the healthcare reform bill passed last night in the states. you know, a little pro, a little con.
and then the earth shook.
no, no, not because the bill was passed. it really, literally SHOOK.
for about 5 seconds and strong enough to get me out of bed and send our neighbors screaming and yelling to the parking lot (you'll probably never meet more dramatic people than dominicans).
it seems there are more important things happening in the world than the passing of a bill that may or may not come into being (because who knows who will take office in 2012 and what they will do to impede or proceed).
if you check out some of the websites that track quakes, you'll see that last night's 4.6 on the richter was just one of HUNDREDS of quakes since january's disaster in haiti. hundreds died in chile.
i'm not saying that healthcare isn't important... i'm just sayin' there's more happening in the world than CNN and FOX news project.
