Red Cross estimates death toll around 50,000 which pales in comparison to the earthquake in Pakistan a few years ago and the tsuamni.

Obviously will go down as a major natural disaster but looking at history since 1900, it probably will not crack the top 20 of the worst of the worst.

Still, I'm glad to see major help being delivered from all across the globe.

Good and bad. Good that the death toll isn't 1/2M like the ambassador said.

Bad if it takes any emphasis away from help.

Earthquakes should have names, just like hurricanes. I'd name this one Juan.

Meat, you won't be able to call ALL the SF quakes "Earthquake Gay", so don't even ask.

I think Earthquakes should start from Z and work backward. Earthquake Zod.

Heard on the radio you can donate to the Red Cross using your cell phone. Text "Haiti" to 90999 and your phone bill gets charged $10. So if you're looking for at least a convienient way to help, there ya go.

If you have someone you really don't like, borrow their cell phone and shoot about 100 of these texts.
