Speaking of countries we can barely think about

Apparently there was a terrorist bombing in Bangladesh last week -- actually, hundreds of coordinated bombs all over the country (more here) -- and it didn't get a single mention in the U.S. despite a large number of injuries. I guess we expect palm-tree countries to get natural disasters (in keeping with their, um, primitive lifestyles), while subway bombs are more the fear of "civilized" countries like England (and New York, heh). yeesh.
