"It is true, and thus the question of whether it is sad or happy has no meaning whatever."

Tourists are flocking to Mt. St. Helens. Because they are stupid. A 28-year-old woman and her husband came down to "spend the day hoping for an eruption -- just not a big one." Not that I really want people to die horribly, not at all, but please, God, make it a BIG ONE!!!! Or, preferably, a number of very small ones that kill only volca-tourists.

Related meme: my friend Beth has a word for these people. It is "touron" (tourist + moron - istmo). I think it fits.
