I know it is not the mature thing to do, but the events in Japan are so horrifying that I just don’t even want to watch the coverage of it any more. For me, the worst is thinking about all the people swept out to sea. I know it happened during the daytime, but surely there were people who were asleep, woke to the crashing of the earthquake and were pinned in the rubble, and then just lay there helpless, crushed by a building, waiting for the water to come in and drown them and carry them out to sea. The whole thing is just awful. The only worse death that I can think of is being burned at the stake or maybe being killed in a mudslide, suffocating on mud.
