    I saw that this a.m. what a bizarre story. On the plus side, it is Italy so you get endless appeals.

    You live in an earthquake-prone-area... get used to it.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    But only in a country like Italy would this be possible. I actually saw some lady proclaim that justice had been done because normally scientists and government officials get away with it.

    I thought it is fine to be grief stricken but to be totally stupid as to blame scientists for not predicting earth quakes is simply insane.

    I hope they will get acquitted in a higher court because this judge should be ashamed of himself for having ruled the way he has.
    I am with Jake Tapper, you have to be a jerk or an idiot to refer to John McCain as "Songbird John"!!!!!!
