Faith 1, science 2

Excellent news today from Christchurch: they cleared all the rubble from the collapsed spire and discovered no bodies beneath it, despite having worried for days that 22 tourists had been inside it. So no-one died inside the cathedral at all. It's hard not to call that a miracle.

And far from anyone dying, there wasn't even a cracked pane in the remarkably vulnerable-looking Art Gallery.That is entirely down to science and technology.
And - breaking away from Christchurch for a moment - I'm presuming that the glass took the strain here, too. That's what you call Just As Bloody Well.
(Not my photo - don't know whose - but boy, that would be something, eh?)
