Earthquake/tsunami in Japan

Yet another terrible disaster, this time in Japan. Already our floods which destroyed so much, and killed a number of people seem like a relatively modest event in retrospect. And all of these things are insignificant in comparison to the daily toll exacted by poverty and hunger in the world.

    You are adding selective information as suits your advocacy ie severely ethics depleted “evidence”.

    It might be worth reading what JQ wrote up top (again?), Alice. He did exactly what Fran has done – provided scale and perspective.

    Your claim that Fran’s statement is ethically “odious” is complete nonsense. Ethics deals precisely with “greater harm” questions.
