Hardly had the dust settled down on Haiti when fitful Mother Nature crashed her tectonic plates and then went into seismic convulsions. This time, Chile was the target – a 8.8 magnitude earthquake on a Saturday morning. The epicenter of the quake was 115 km (70 miles) north-east of Concepcion and 325 km south-west of Santiago. Even now, as I write in my blog, Chilean officials and ministers are still trying to come to terms with the scale of the disaster.
And just in case we think Haiti no longer commands front page news, please take note that about a million Haitians are still homeless following last month’s earthquake which killed up to 230,000 people. And news reports today talk of heavy rains triggering deadly Haiti floods. The Haiti people do need our help!
Today’s SPL game between Celtic and Rangers should see the former triumph over the latter but instead for the most part of the game, it threatened to end in a scoreless draw. Well, until Rangers’ Maurice Edu broke the deadlock by shooting from close range low into the middle of the goal with seconds remaining. Rangers 1-0 Celtic.
