It seems that when natural disaster strikes, hysteria takes over. Rumors, and mis-impressions, and ignorance and outright lies start traveling as fast as a tsunami wave across the ocean. Faster, now that we’re in the age of the internet and instant communications. The recent one in Japan is no exception.
And of course, there is the usual religious blather. I’m waiting for Pat Robertson to claim that it’s all because of teh gays.
