Sri Lanka, Alas, Got Its 15-Minutes Of Media Fame In The U.S. Today — 1st Time Many Would Have Heard The Name.

Click to ENLARGE. This from CNN. All media outlets featured the story.


Yes, yes, yes. There was the 2004 ‘Christmas’ tsunami — but, Sri Lanka had to share that tragic news with, at a minimum with Thailand & Indonesia.

Not so with the Easter 2019 atrocity. Sri Lanka on its own. TV news started with the Sri Lanka story. This was BIG.

I can assure you that this would have been the first time millions of Americans ever heard of ‘Sri Lanka’. I know that they don’t know.. I live with it every day.

As of now some will remember — alas with the ‘terrorist’ connotation.

Well, I guess we can’t have it all.
