I've not read an enormous amount about the Asian earthquake and tsunami on the blogs yet. Deaths currently at 7,000 - that's two 9/11s right there. Supposed to be the strongest earthquake in my lifetime. Not much we can do or say about it though is there? I hope one day there is an efficient multinational disaster force that will respond rapidly and proportionately to disasters like this.
The other world news I'm watching at the moment is the Ukrainian election of course.
