(Earthquake in China - a rather jumpy few weeks in the world)

In case you were curious, there were other things going on in the world today. China is the latest in what seems to be a swarm of earthquakes larger than 5.0 going on throughout the world. The consensus of opinion is evenly divided as to whether this is normal or the harbinger of things to come. Either way, the world is still shaking. The elections in Sudan have been going on. The British election season is heating up and the Poles are still in mourning over the loss of Lech Kaczynski and 95 others over the weekend. A state funeral is expected to take place on Sunday with President Obama and most of the world's dignitaries in attendance.

So here are two capsules of the days news. Above is from Newshour at 1300 GMT from BBC World Service and below is the External Service (English) of Radio Poland.

(at last count, the wait was nine hours)

A busy day. And the rest of the world could care less about Sarah Palin's speaking demands.
