it gives them a lever to use against you.
I bitch about the weather weenies, and occasionally hint at vile deeds being committed upon them when the blow a forecast; the Italians have decided to take that and run it to the idiotic extreme:
An Italian court convicted seven
scientists and experts of manslaughter on Monday for failing to
adequately warn citizens before an earthquake struck central Italy in
2009, killing more than 300 people.
The defendants were accused in the indictment of giving `'inexact,
incomplete and contradictory information" about whether small tremors
felt by L'Aquila residents in the weeks and months before the April 6,
2009, quake should have constituted grounds for a quake warning.
In further news, the courts are planning for the future trials of doctors who don't realize the patient with the flu is actually the Antichrist, and vulcanologists who fail to predict the minor eruption that broke their grandmothers' prized vase.
