When big events happen in the world my personal life melts away and I roost in front of my television at home or stew by the XM radio at work.
By chance, last week, I ordered a huge LCD HDTV – because I have wanted one for many years. I now watch the ruined lives of gulf coast residents in crisp clear colors I have never known before. The surround sound cries for a normal life lost fill the apartment. Flashes of now devastated hotels I have stayed at several times before are emblazed in my minds eye forever.
