Have these people no shame? They have sued the federal agency that operates the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center. I bet these people had never heard of this agency before this latest Tsunami or visited the web site to check for warnings.
Needless to say, I feel badly for all the people who lost their lives and for their families. Though I do not believe this case has any merit. (Again I'll let the BlogDog offer analysis.) Did these travelers expect an email from the government? Do they want to have to tell the government their travel plans in advance so any possible atmospheric dangers can be brought to their attention? I think not.
