Think The Gulf Is Has It Bad? Try Kashmir
If you didn't catch the news on Saturday between college football games and mowing the lawn, there was a 7.6 magnitude earthquake near the Pakistan/India border. The AP is reporting that Pakistani officials have made estimates that 20,000 to 30,000 people have be killed in the earthquake. I think due to the location of this event, geographers and others may want to keep an eye on how geographic and political temperature of this area. As we know, poverty and natural disasters don't make for good person-to-person situations. Although, I would hope for some optimism that neighbors would band together to get through this and repair or eradicate any cultural animosity that they would have in this region.
