These tweets are not necessarily in chronological order; I tried to keep it somewhat narrative. Sorry if I didn't include yours, but I'm hungry now, and I need a beer to soothe my nerves. Read More

California can be smug about the earthquake as soon as it learns how to write a functional state constitution.

@fbihop I do think the nature of the ground on the east coast is a bit different, so a 5.8 here != a 5.8 there. Still, not a ZOMG RUN quake.
