There are few people in existance who would have anything positive to
say about the human suffering being inflicted because of 'acts of God'.
Problems related to a computer which is a device relegated to people who
earn more one dollar a day are things which many of us have the leasure
to enjoy. I would certainly wish anyone afflicted by these numerous
horrors the best possible outcome.
