Mama, don't build your subdivision on an active volcano!
I think that's a great title for a song! I didn't realize that somebody built a subdivision on the end volcano of the Hawaii chain. That seems bizarre, but the whole thing has been practically wiped out by very slow lava flows. Kilauea is so benign that only the tourists gets killed ("Take my picture standing on this red stuff, Martha!").
