“It’s such an important issue in America right now — the sex addiction outbreak,” Stone said. “We’re all really concerned about him and hope he gets better.”

“There’s a delicacy in talking about [Woods] that we don’t have to worry about,” he added. ’South Park’ has never strayed away from hot button issues.

Chile Earthquake 2010 Pictures!

A massive 8.8-magnitude earthquake capable of tremendous damage struck central Chile early Saturday, shaking the capital for a minute and a half and setting off a tsunami. Buildings collapsed and phone lines and electricity were down, making the extent of the damage difficult to determine.

The death toll has reached close to 300, with more expected.

The quake hit 200 miles southwest of the capital, Santiago, at a depth of 22 mile at 3:34 a.m.

The epicenter was just 70 miles from Concepcion, Chile’s second-largest city, where more than 200,000 people live along the Bio Bio river, and 60 miles from the ski town of Chillan, a gateway to Andean ski resorts that was destroyed in a 1939 earthquake.

An Associated Press Television News cameraman said some buildings collapsed in Santiago and power was out in parts of the city. Phone lines were either down or busy, making confirmation of damage difficult elsewhere, especially further south toward the epicenter. The quake was felt in Argentina as well.

After Saturday’s tragedy in Chile, here are some photos that tell the tale of this horrific catastrophe.
