Annals of true feelings...

More than a quarter of a million are dead or missing. I was somehow struck by the headline below - sounded too frivolous, too clichéd, too clinical... (maybe it is just me)...

From wikipedia: The phrase perfect storm is borrowed from the 1997 book The Perfect Storm. The phrase refers to the simultaneous occurrence of events which, taken individually, would be far less powerful than the result of their chance combination. Such occurrences are rare by their very nature, so that even a slight change in any one event contributing to the perfect storm would lessen its overall impact.
