That Sinking Feeling




Guatemala

Neither of these images have been Photoshopped. And no, they’re not from a movie set.


On Sunday, a 30-story-deep sinkhole appeared in Guatemala. It reportedly swallowed up a couple of buildings and appeared in the wake of Tropical Storm Agatha which killed at least 146 people and caused 150,000 across Central America to be evacuated. Agatha coupled with the continuing eruption of Pacaya Volcano (located just 19 miles from the capital) means that Guatemala is in a state of crisis.

Which begs the question: why is this morning’s lead story by the majority of Australian media outlets about a former escort’s grab for a piece of Richard Pratt’s estate?

Makes you think, doesn’t it?
