CGW, by putting on a holier-than-thou attitude, you are acting no better than those that think that this disaster was cosmic retribution for WWII. I agree that the situation is tragic, and that those that are able to should make a donation, but I also think that it important for people to remain informed about the status of products that may influence their livelihood.

Yes, I am concerned about people in Japan, but I am also concerned about the American autoworkers who are now on idle time since they can't make cars, the electronics manufacturers and retailers that are at a practical standstill, and the American families that will probably be facing a 50% increase in prices (at least temporarily) once products start flowing from Japan again.
