"Officials say more than 300 explosions took place simultaneously in 50 cities and towns across the country including the capital Dhaka."
(From the Daily Chump, who noted that this would be much bigger news if it had occurred elsewhere...)

It turns out this is actually quite interesting reading, since Post writes very well.
(Specifically the chapters on weddings, since I've got one to go to this weekend...)

Dunno. I don't think we import much oil from the US (and it's their oil fields that are affected here, obviously), but global oil prices tend to be connected.
The sooner we can wean Americans off their ridiculously overpowered cars -- and the world off oil in the general -- the better, of course.
