Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I lived in the Bay Area - you get used to it after a while. I've slept through bigger earthquakes than the one in the UK.

They also had a minor one a few weeks ago in the Middle East. At least we know what caused that one. From Ha'aretz, Feb 20:

Shas MK Shlomo Benizri blamed gays Wednesday for the earthquakes that have shaken the region in recent months, telling a Knesset plenum debate on local authorities' earthquake preparedness that government action on homosexuality would do much to prevent the tremors.

Benizri said the government should not make do with reinforcing buildings, but should instead pass less legislation that encourages homosexuality and other "perversions like adoptions by lesbian couples."

Are there idiots like that in the U.K. as well?
