Tibetan Tectonics

The twin disasters continue to unfold.

The storm is over in Burma but the humanitarian nightmare continues. And the constitutional referendum went ahead despite being "blatantly rigged."

Meanwhile ABC says "Tibetan tectonics triggered China quake."

The violent quake that shook China's Sichuan province this week is linked to a shift of the Tibetan plateau to the north and east, researchers say.

Hmm. And some inside China didn't take kindly to the cheery spectacle of the Olympic torch jogging along as if nothing were wrong.
