I don’t tend to pay attention to the news much on the weekends, less so when it’s a three day weekend, so I’m just getting caught up on what’s been happening. Seems there was a magnitude 6.3 quake in Indonesia Saturday with some 5,000+ estimated dead so far. As if that weren’t enough, the quake was followed by torrential rains and the very real possibility that Mount Merapi might erupt at any second.
Has anyone started a pool on how long it’ll be before some asshat Christian claims it’s punishment from God? I’ve not noticed any such pronouncements yet, which is surprising given the speed they’ve come in the past.
