      Too much troubles with that damn earthquake in Chile. Politicals only think about reelections.

      What really surprised me about the earthquakes in Chile was that there wasn't nearly the outpouring of support and relief that we saw in the Haiti disaster. I'm not sure if it was a political move by those in power to show that they had a strong enough infrastructure that they didn't need outside help, or maybe they truly had it handled. For the people who were affected, I hope they truly did.
