When to give up on history - New Zealand Earthquake


"THIS is the greatest disaster New Zealand has ever seen," Agriculture Minister David Carter told The Australian yesterday.

I think the biggest lesson here will be what to do with historic brick buildings on swamps. This might stiffen the resolve to tear them down, or lift them on to screw piles. I am constantly amazed that nobody got killed.
