Hey, anybody remember Haiti?
Anybody remember New Orleans?
Yes I agree that after a while, these type of things do kind of drop off the face of the planet after a while..... but also, to sound a tad heartless.... I also get sick of hearing about them for weeks on end and everything else in the world seems to go un-noticed.
Though in the defence of the Japan reporting, I did come across a report about a worker dying at the Nuclear plant just a couple of days ago. The reporting on the crisis has died down a bit, but it's still being reported.
