More horrible news coming from the Philippines--progress seems to be non-existent after Haiyan

“My children are decomposing”
This is a quote from Juvelyn Taniega as reported by CNN today.. She is in the Philippines  and because of the slowness of recovery, she is now forced to watch as the bodies of her children decompose in front of  her..

CNN reports it this way:
Juvelyn Taniega tried to keep busy. She collected old dishes and cleaned them, crouching near where her home once stood and the place where she last saw her husband and six children alive. She’s found the bodies of three of her children, but three of them are still missing. In days, she said, no one has come to help. “My children are decomposing,” she said. There are many like her, looking in disbelief over miles of fields full of crushed wood and stone that once stood as houses, wondering if her missing loved ones are buried in them.
I cannot even fathom the heartbreak and emotion of this.. I cannot even understand or grasp the suffering that so many are going through right now.
Whether there is a god or not, there is certainly reason to doubt the kindness of nature.. and God. We have seen suffering on massive scales before. Hell even the dinosaurs had a miserable existence extinguished by a hellstorm from above. Does the earth itself just hate us? 
There has always been hurt, loss, suffering, and sadness. But through it all there has also been a monstrous amount of love and goodness.
The only hope that people in the Philippines have right now is that there will be enough love to overcome the misery..and the decomposing bodies under their feet.

HEATHER WADING INTO DANGER: ART BELL RESPONDS

Heather Wade announced that she was going to go to Area 51 this coming June.. People have been responding fast and furious, with some stating she is in danger of being arrested--or even killed!

Talk show legend and original MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT host Art Bell is responding in kind to people on Facebook..

What Heather is doing is a brave act. For all my life people have talked Disclosure and talked and talked. I have no illusion that she will get to any Alien anything but at least she feels the need to do something, anything to move beyond talk and raise the stakes in trying to get to the truth. If we have been visited (and I believe we have) we have a right to know. It seems to me we have a moral right to know, will it change people’s basic faith? Not any more than the Pope suddenly being quoted as saying “There is no Hell”. We have a right to know, she is right and if a act of Civil Disobedience helps I am all for it.
On acts of civil disobedience..
