Earthquake registering 6.5 in California: two fatalities (God rest them and comfort their families). Earthquake registering 6.3 in Iran: 20,000+ dead. I wish the same for them, but in an age in which structures can be made relatively quake-safe, this is a crime against humanity.
With all of the so-called humanitarian movements originating here in the most technologically advanced society in the world—your PETA, your ELF, your ACLU, etc.—one wonders where the 'Architects to Save Human Life' are; going into the Third World earthquake zones and teaching the good people of less technologically advanced countries to build with safety in mind. Anyone have a link to such an organization?
