Only ABC had a correspondent update us on the simultaneous catastrophe in China's neighbor Myanmar. Joohee Cho filed A Closer Look on her clandestine week "traveling through the Irrawaddy Delta, ruined houses, dead bodies and mud everywhere, a human nightmare that the military junta does not want the rest of the world to see." She claimed that she bluffed her way past checkpoints as she headed into the disaster zone "saying we were tourists" although it beggars belief that the town of Labutta would be a plausible tourist destination. "When we reached the worst hit areas, the dead bodies, we smelled them first and we put on masks. Many of them were children, more than we could count." On occasions the parents died and the child survived: "I wonder what will happen to him. There are no orphanages in Myanmar."
