At the home page http://www.usatoday.com/ right now (10:10am Eastern), the main picture is from the cyclone in Bangladesh, with a woman whose face shows heart-rending anguish.
Right underneath it are items that exemplify the profligacy of the developed world (the USA in this case) -- The Spice Girls concert, How many calories at Thanksgiving, buying artisan breads.
I makes me ashamed.
P.S., now that's the SECOND photo to haunt me in as many weeks.
Why would you be ashamed?
There's nothing unique about today. Every hour of every day, there's a tragedy occurring somewhere in the world.
If you need to feel down every time a tragedy occurs, you'll never feel normal.

I'm with you Peter. I think profligacy is too kind.
You live the way you want to, Joe, and I'll do the same.
I think some of your responses (especially to my posts) are motivated solely by the desire to disagree.
The picture isn't on the home page now, but you can still see it it http://www.usatoday.com/weather/stor...-cyclone_N.htm
Is there a word for being proud of being ashamed?
I think in religious circles it's called righteousness...that general state of living rightly and recognizing those areas of life that need improvement.
