Italy Shakes Down Seismologists


The judge said the defendants "gave inexact, incomplete and contradictory information" about whether smaller tremors in L'Aquila six months before the 6.3 magnitude quake on 6 April, which killed more than 300 people, should have been viewed as warning signs of the subsequent disaster.

That's the problem with people who do magic.  It's like feeding wild bears.  Everything is fine and dandy, until you run out of food.  Then the bears rise up and demand more, and probably kill you, thus denying them more food in the future.  So, the whole place is full of these bears, who overlook a certain leader's bunga excesses, and go after seismologists.

I am boycotting Italy.  And I call on the Great Powers of Earthquakery to rain down earthquakes upon their tiny heads!
