    Thumbs up to Alaska’s strict building codes. Last I heard, no fatalities, no serious injuries, no major structural collapses of buildings. Now, if they would just get their act together and build roads that hold up intact when the ground drops out from under them!

    I plan to use cartoon physics; everything should be OK so long as none of the drivers look down.
