Second, a thought for them -- you might want to rebel against your fascist government.
Gioacchino Giuliani is a siesmologist who was tracking the minor tremors that started back in January. Based on studies of pockets of radon gas in active areas, he concluded a big one was coming about a month ago. A truck rode through the streets, broadcasting the news that this scientist thought something Really Bad was going to happen and people should head for the hills.
The government's response? Slap a muzzle on Giuliani for creating a public disturbance. The Civil Protection agency then trotted out the Major Risks Committee, who tried to reassure the populous that nothing was going to happen to them.
The rest, as they say, is history.
And this is why I love the 1st Amendment so much and hate anyone who tries to curtail it.
