In regards to Japan, unless someone here is a certified SAR team member and has been dispatched to aid in person in Japan, then there is very little that anyone here can do except donate money and physical goods. Good chance that many of us already have if we are able to. Discussion of things DCA related in no way takes away from my concern for, prayers for, donations to, worry about, watching of news related to the recent tragedy in Japan. If you are so worried that discussing the alignment of building vs. railings is detrimental to the recovery of Japan, why are you here discussing how detrimental it is to the recovery of Japan? See the disconnect? In haranguing others about it, you become what you are haranguing. So let's just cut it. There is not a single person here who is not as concerned and saddened as a human being can be for the suffering and loss of life that is ongoing. I've made a donation to the Red Cross and that will help someone out. But not talking about DCA details will make no difference one way or another, nor will staring at the news feeds all day.
