Media in the U.S. has had a one-track mind as of late, with virtually all coverage being devoted to the enduring aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. I was surprised then to learn that on Tuesday while watching Richard Simmons being reunited with his brother in Baton Rouge, a major typhoon had struck Japan. Typhoon Nabi forced Toyota, Nissan, Mazda and Honda to shut down plants ahead of the storm's arrival, which so far has been responsible for eighteen deaths and the destruction of over 1,000 homes. Is it just me or has extreme weather been occuring more frequently over the last few years?
