  2. I love how all the news blogs and twitter are going on and on about Sandy on the east coast, but the earthquake and tsunami on the west are being ignored.

  3. Massive???? Are you people blind? Please. It's only a Cat 1 storm.
    This is only news because it's headed towards New York.
    If this were a Gulf of Mexico storm headed for the Mississippi or Alabama Gulf Coast, there would be little or no mention of this storm in the National news.
    Typical East Coast bias. "It's happening to us so it's the most important thing evar!!!
