I'm back in LA -- was just watching last night's How I Met Your Mother on the DVR, and there was a local news teaser that I really, really, really could not believe. I'm paraphrasing, but essentially:
"Thousands die in China earthquake. Are you ready for the big one? Find out tonight at 11."
Yes, because who cares about the thousands of people in China, the important thing is whether you have a flashlight and some batteries.
