Flooding in Ecuador, The Flashbacks to Katrina

Via La Chola,

I've been watching the news every day, looking at the latest election drama--I swear it's more melodrama than "The Young and the Restless"--but I hadn't even heard about the tragic flooding that's occurring in Ecuador. Ten people have died already. I'm sure that number will increase in the next few days, unfortunately.

My God, it never stops happening to us. Because of Katrina, I've had to live with the knowledge that some of those brown bodies will never be seen again. I don't know. It's just, there's something about the idea of those bodies just floating out to sea...not even receiving a proper burial or whatever rites one might wish to say over the dead. It's not right.
