No doubt most you have heard that nearly 1,400 people are feared dead, after a ferry sank in the Red Sea. Call me heartless but my first thoughts were that I should be out there covering the story. Such stories are a wonderful opportunity for journalists like me to work. When the London bombings happened last summer, my first instinct was that I shouldn't be here in my house, I should be close to the action. This time, I am close to the action, not necessarily physically, but in the sense that it could take a while before news organisations get people on the groud.
Right now, all my efforts are being put into seeing if I can make any journalistic capital out of this tragedy.
