Entire swim team lost in Japan


Heart wrenching story here in the New York Times, about how a whole swim team and their coach were lost to the tsunami, when walking a half-mile to practice at the nearly new natatorium in Rikuzentakata. But they are not the only ones: in this town of 23,000, more than one in 10 people is either dead or has not been seen since that afternoon, now 10 days ago, when a tsunami flattened three-quarters of the city in minutes.
