(I didn't get William's message to thechat. Did the server burp?)

William, you are technically correct and I don't disagree with you. I wrote 
the same thing myself. See 

However, your message did seem devoid of compassion and as Ron said, it 
came cross as "cold". To those of us whose fellow countrymen have died by 
the thousands, it hits a little harder than you might expect.

For the record, we've never had a tsunami in these parts in known history, 
so an expensive monitoring system (about $27 million cost) probably didn't 
seem worth the investment. Hindsight is always 20-20.


(who's currently witnessing a tsunami on his site after being mentioned on 
www.Instapundit.com )

PS: I've got a nice orange-lemon chicken recipe on my chef blog that you 
folks might enjoy.
