A powerful quake, registering 6.5 magnitude, has hit Japan again, replete with a 2-foot tsunami aimed at Miyagi Prefecture.
The Japanese definitely need some sort of break from this. Aftershocks have been hitting them repeatedly, whch further weakens buildings almost as fast as it wears nerves.
Let us hope that the effects are mild.
Ora pro illis is all we can offer.
Update: Tsunami failed to appear, evidently, and no reported injuries!
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
