and elsewhere that we could use some help once in a while too.
Sorry ´bout that.
Just before I wrote that, I was reading so many articles where they briefly mentioned Cuba, Jamaica, etc., The wording of these articles was like the
other places didn´t count and wasn´t important at all. Only the situation for Florida was a concern. I think these journalists (Europeans) might have
just translated directly from american articles where they of course was more concerned about Florida (and I don´t blame the americans for that). The
wording was something like : "...And after Ivan have destroyed everything on its way, then we will all worry about what will happen to Florida and we
will all pray for Florida together." See what I mean? The wording is wrong.
I was actually meaning to attack these European journalists which obviously forgot about Cuba, Grenada, Jamaica, and so on...
And I appreciate that US is sending aid to Cuba, Jamaica etc.
Specially when they have these problems of their own.
My criticism was not about aid, but was meant to be about unprofessional emptyheaded journalists.
