Two trains collided in northwestern Zimbabwe early Saturday, killing at least 37 people. Another six or seven were killed in an avalanche in Canada.

I must say, it puts the tragic Space Shuttle accident into some sort of perspective. Those killed on the shuttle (my guess is through heat shield failure) were brave men and women, who fully accepted the risks which came with the job. With all the media coverage the accident has received however, it makes me wonder how many people already knew about the other two significant tragedies that occurred today...

I knew about both before reading this here (then again, some have called me a newshound, so maybe I shouldn't count for this "litmus test")

But the shuttle disaster still ways more heavily on me than the rest. And not just because I'm an American. And I think the TV stations (at least here in the states) have a right to focus more on the shuttle disaster than the rest, at least for today that is. But I digress.....
