Wow. Great stuff. Especially haunting was the UNICEF slide show (fifth link).

Meanwhile, and Indonesian judge has declared that the tsunami was the result of women being sluts and whores.

"A year after the disaster which many see as a divine punishment, emboldened Islamic hardliners are doing their best to eradicate sin — and women are their prime targets."

No, but it's on it's way because God is freaking out in Meta.

Indonesia sucks, but the people bleed like you and me.

Oh, yeah, 2004, it just seems like it happened last year, which already seems so 2005.

yech... can we please stop calling it the "boxing day tsunami"? most of the people in that part of the world are either muslim or hindu, i believe.

or must we also colonize their grief?

Well, they don't call the Indian Ocean the Indian Ocean either, and they don't call December December, and in fact, all the people affected don't have a common term for almost anything, so what do you suggest we call it in order to not offend some subgroup of victims?

Not to mention there are indeed significant numbers of Christians in south Asia, India and Thailand, particularly.
