Wait till New York City has an earthquake. The NYT will be screaming to be rebuilt.
Good point. In every other earthquake, the locals usually refuse all aid and assistance and quietly move away, never daring to rebuild.
But those selfish New Yorkers will probably ignore the natural human impulse to just give up, abandon one's home, and slink away.
Why can't they accept the nobility that comes with being a coward and a quitter?
