    Some possible reasons.

    One, there is some happening, but we just aren't getting the full story.

    Two, it's just not happening because they aren't as materialistic as we are.

    Three, the devestation was so wide spread, there just wasn't any thing left to loot.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I've found it odd that you have not blamed Bush yet.

    Don't you have a direct pipeline to Obama? I am sure he could answer your question.

    Honor.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    That is my belief.

    Now I love being American and everything, but my 7+ years in Japan has taught me that in many aspects their culture is superior to ours.

    Very much so,If you drop your wallet on the street they would chase after you to return it.When I was there even if you were at a party and your wallet was left on the table while you danced with a girl no one would even consider taking it,Their concept of honor is far superior to ours.

    It was a frequent thing to see a Japanese person pull up to a store, step out of their car leaving it running, go in for 15 minutes, and come out, without a second thought.

    I'd love to see somewhere in America I could do that.

    People do it here. It's illegal, but they do it in the summer. Cops do it. In Fairfax VA people go out in their pj's on icy mornings and start the car, leave it running for 45 minutes while they go back inside, and then leave foe work. It's horribly wasteful.
