Will Tort Reform Or A Tsunami Suit Lead To Safety? Sign Up Now.

Tort reform is tough when you're not the chancellor of Germany or Austria.

President Bush has been pushing his agenda for some time, and there are those who oppose it. Whether you support it or not, the issue is now squarely in front of us.

In what's likely to be the first of many, there's a new lawsuit by German and Austrian individuals who lost relatives in the tsunami. They're suing the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Tsunami Warning Center and a hotel chain for not providing warnings about the tsunami.

As you probably already suspect, there's a website dedicated to a tsunami class action lawsuit. The two suits do not appear to be related.

Apart from whether you support tort reform or not, there's a practical side to all of this, and it's available to you immediately. You don't need to wait for the consequences of whether the lawsuit or tort reform will make the world a safer place.

You can learn more about the physical and natural effects of the tsunami from the International Tsunami Information Center, and if you're traveling to an area near the ocean, you may want to sign up to get earthquake (tsunami) warnings from PubSub.

Be safe out there.
