The death toll rises in Chile, as does the looting. One Senator is linked to at least 2,000 job cuts. We've got the raw politics. Plus, the SeaWorld trainer fatally attacked by a killer whale is laid to rest as more questions are raised on whether such creatures of the sea should be held in captivity.

    @ Molly, that Orcha was released lived longer than that person on LKL stated. Obviously that trainer was very biased, whereas Oregon has been the only ones to rescue, rehab and release a Orcha.

    Sen. Jim Bunning is such a disgrace and he has hurt so many innocent people that I think he should be removed from the Baseball Hall of Fame. If Pete Rose was denied being in the Baseball Hall of Fame because of gambling which did not hurt any innocent people, then why should Bunning remain in the Baseball Hall of Fame after his disgraceful behavior? Bunning was also one of only two Senators who voted against confirming Defense Secretary Robert Gates which also showed his lack of sound judgment in my opinion!

    @Mike, formerly from Syracuse, Why can you admit that there were less looting in Haiti without demonizing the country.

    It is very sad to see (belatedly) that a person was so desperate, unable to scream for help and felt so alone.
