    Note to self: Do not work in Italy after graduation.

    Are the Italians going to sue the city of Naples for building a city in just about the stupidest place imaginable when it comes to Italian geological hazards?

    I wonder if you can apply that logic to politicians. 'If you elect me, crime will go down.' Crime goes up, and they get charged with murder.
