Recent heartrending earthquakes

The big destructive one in the Appennini Mountains and then the one in Myanmar, higher on Richter scale but sounding less destructive at least in the news I saw, both hard on the people. I read in Time this morning (pretty useful article) that in the Appeninni it has been ever thus, and it will happen again and again because of the long faultline. I think I read in the same article how the area has very long been a big source for food for other areas, Rome, for example, sigh.

Amatrice breaks my heart, as does Accumoli. I haven't been to either, but have been to Perugia, not all so far away, as have other friends. Not the same as being part of the area, not the same as having family there for a long time and having loved ones killed and your towns destroyed.

This will sound obnoxious but I don't mean it that way - tonight I am making meatballs all'Amatriciana, in sorrow.

@ossobucotemp,
When 'apothis' hits us (2036) you'd better cook everything - Quickly.

They're raising money by selling pasta all'Amatriciana, as shown in actual article, http link a bit confusing.
