the SunHerald's wonderfully talented photographer, Jamie Bates, nabbed this one. it was during an incrdibly awkward moment. I was told I was only going to be able to ask one question. So, I asked, "Mr. Bush, I know you are a well traveled man. Did this compare to anything else you've seen?" To which he replied, and I sum, "Yes, Banda Aceh. In many ways this was worse though. I mean there, the human loss was worse, but they only lost fishing shacks on the beach. Here, you've lost historical and million dollar homes." While I understood what he meant, I couldn't help turning up my liberal-skeptical response to that. That's probably why I'm making that face.
