Stay on target
Yes, we had another one. We’re all fine.
Most of the stuff that was going to get knocked down by a big earthquake was already knocked down in August. The Basilica of San Benedetto suffered quite a bit more damage, but that is all. No one was hurt and the buildings that were vulnerable had already been shored up and reinforced with a mind to just this. Italian seismic engineers know their work.
The annoying part, of course, is that now all the damage assessments have to be started all over and probably more funding is going to be needed to start the repairs. But we’re really not much worse off this morning than we were yesterday morning.
Don’t get distracted. The Asteroid’s still coming. Errybody get back to work.
No, do not loosen up.
