    Sorry I can't contribute much but I cant find much wrong with the translation. Good job.
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    Re: Another News Article

    I'll just correct the meaning without worrying much about style.
    It is sort of strange though: it is good but it looks much like a translation that a Russian person without much English practice would make. Are you a native English speaker?

    From an article on the Wash Post website:
    By Friday, a firm death figure emerged from one suburb of New Orleans: Jefferson Parish. An official there said the morgue had received 196 bodies within two days, including many from hard-hit Plaquemines and St. Bernard parishes.

    "Many of them are drownings; some of them were crushed by falling trees, some impacted by flying debris," Walter S. Maestri III, Jefferson Parish emergency manager, said in a telephone interview

    PS. Dunno how to do strikethrough here so I've underlined the parts you need to drop.

    Thankyou.

    I am a native english speaker, but when I translate, and what I translate doesn't make perfect sense, sometimes I find it hard to uncover the intended meaning, and then reword it so that it makes sense in English, hence it soundinging Runglishy. I understand my error though. Thanks again!
