As rescue workers searched for survivors in the wreckage of a four-story school Thursday, Mira Utami's mother clawed away, too — looking for the shoes missing from her daughter's body. Mira was taking a high school English final when the quake hit, flattening the school in seconds and killing her a week before her 16th birthday.

John Holmes, the U.N.'s humanitarian chief, set the death toll at 1,100, and the number was expected to grow. Government figures put the number of dead at 777, with at least 440 people seriously injured.

Is it simply me or does it look like a few of these responses look like they are coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other online social sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of your public sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
