    Be careful what you ask for. While it might start in the L.A. office it might just end up in all our yards. God might just be vexed with all of us. Leave the Premier alone. You devil worshippers.

    Never forget that the Cayman Islands are the outcroppings of an underwater volcanic mountain range, some 22,000 feet high. We are the top few feet of this mountain, and we should bear this in mind. Personally, I do not like earthquakes which in any way disturb our mountain.
