The Bridge Collapse is devastating, to say the least.(Emphasis is mine)
Jeannette from Minneapolis informs me that insurance companies will not be covering cars damaged in the collapse because it was an “act of God.” (There are no news stories I found that include further information on this, so if you see one, please link to it in the comments.)
That phrase is legal language, for what it’s worth.
Act of god? Well, guess what... god's an asshole. Still, that's not why the bridge collapsed. It collapsed because of incompetent fucking builders, and these poor people need to be compensated for their losses. Fucking insurance companies will find any excuse not to help people.
