Deep thoughts, April 8, 2009

Ten years for one building?

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi says his government will build a whole new town "in 24 to 28 months" for the survivors of Monday's earthquake in the town of L'Aquila.

But almost 10 years (already 114 months) after Taiwan's 921 Earthquake which destroyed only one building in Taipei City (approximately 150 kilometers north-northeast of the quake's epicenter), then-mayor/current-president Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) still hasn't finished rebuilding that one building.

I don't think Berlusconi will meet that target, but I bet it will still happen long before Ma finishes.

Can you prove me wrong, Mr. Ma?!

The answer is "42," but what was the question again?: , , , , , , , , ,
