It's absolutely horrendous, the carnage is just like 9/11 - and Waity is grinning IMO like a loon, as though she couldn't care less. How selfish. A little restraint is in order; after all, William was just in NZ a little over a year ago REPRESENTING HIS GRANDMOTHER, The Head of State of NZ. It isn't as though Kate doesn't know or that it has no relevance to her.

Yes, it is, but then hearing other stories filtering through now, like the funeral for a 5 month-old boy.  wine

Sorry for the morbid post.

Can you imagine a time when the truth ran free ...

Natural disasters are always depressing, imo! So many innocent victims. My hope is that NZ residents can move on and rebuild their lives in a timely manner. ...
