Isn't it strange when our national news spends 10 minutes covering impending doom to North America over hurricanes and preparedness (or lack thereof) and then, almost as an after thought, mentions 10 Million people newly homeless as a result of flooding from the forming of aforementioned hurricanes.? But that's not news! No way! Why would anybody want to know the details of 10 Million displaced people when we could be sitting on the edge of our seats watching hurricanes move over water. *clears throat*

In the "good ol' days" 10 million people represented the population of the world not just a single country. 10 million affected. Pffft Where's the news in that?

Priorities of modern man are totally fucked!
