Sorry Looking

The AP reports from the Phillipines:

The farming village is gone, swallowed whole by a wall of mud and boulders that swept down with terrifying speed Friday from a mountainside in the eastern Philippines. Officials feared the death toll could climb past 1,500.

"There are no signs of life, no rooftops, no nothing," Southern Leyte province Gov. Rosette Lerias said.

Gov. Rosette Lerias then choked up and went on to say, "My family and I are deeply sorry for all that Vice President Cheney and his family have had to go through because of this mudslide."
