They felt it in Toronto and in Hamilton, but not in my folk's hometown in between. They did however get a severe windstorm that tore off some tree branches and shattered the glass deck table. . .

Needless to say all of the news folks here lost interest in both the earthquake and the storm once they passed our borders. Does Britain ever have earthquakes?

Does celebrity scandal count? No? Then I don't think it does.

If it did, The country would have done shake and bake by now. Acid test. When, Clinton was acquitted, was DC rocked by earthquakes and hurricanes?

Last month, a Wingnut told me that the recurring recession is Obama's fault, "because it happened on his watch!!" I replied, "So, 9/11...?"

I'm waiting for Michelle Bachman to start quacking about how this is God's judgment against Obama & Congress. Then I can tell her toadies what a half-arsed wimp their God is. Jeez: he couldn't even knock something over? :lol:

The Earthquake was the only thing taking DC seriously. Giggle.

Everybody takes DC seriously. Otherwise why hate us so?
