On a serious note, i send my condolences to the victims of the Haiti and Chile earthquakes. I can only imagine what they must be going through and what the government can do to help these people.
I only worry that with such a disaster-prone area, such things should have been predicted/forecasted and proactive measures should be made to forestall such event from making meals of human and animal lives. Can't scientists think of creating houses that can withstand such ''heat'' instead of making bombs to kill fellow lives because of sinister reasons like religion or oil.
The same earth we live in may not be able to cope much longer with the destruction meted out to it. A word for the discerning.
