    Someone who can't predict earthquakes, obviously.

    edit: What I meant to say was, "I have no idea what you're talking about." :action-sm

    I've heard of people being persecuted for being witches, but being persecuted for NOT being witches? That's a new one.

    Now to be fair, shouldn't they be just as pissed at their neighbors in the Vatican?

    I agree that this is beyond retarded, but the coverage is retarded too. The reason why these people are targeted is not because they are scientists, it's because they were also government officials.

    True, this is an emotional, irrational response by some very stupid people who are expecting the government to perform miracles, but the anger is not directed at science so much as it is directed at the government. If these scientists would've stayed just scientists, instead of drawing a paycheck from a government which set out to make everybody safe, they would be fine.

    Add Italy to the list of shitty, fucked-up countries. (I say this with a heavy heart because I like Italy.)
