Italy goes crazy

No, it's not because they let the cast of "The Jersey Shore" film their fourth season there; it's because of this:

Italian government officials have accused the country's top seismologist of manslaughter, after failing to predict a natural disaster that struck Italy in 2009, a massive devastating earthquake that killed 308 people.

Earthquakes are, of course, nearly impossible to predict, seismologists say. In fact, according to the website for the USGS, no major quake has ever been predicted successfully.

Sheesh. How awesomely pathetic is this? Our local TV station weathermen would all have criminal records if they lived in Italy!
