Rare Earthquake Rocks U.S. East Coast

I doubt that it is news to anyone at this late hour that a very rare earthquake occurred earlier today with an epicenter just south of Mineral, Virginia and was also felt several states away, but I thought it prudent to mention here nonetheless so that together we can take a look at some of the news generated by the event.  Needless to say, we easterners are not accustomed to such things, so it is a big, big deal regardless of the small amount of damage and lack of fatalities (thank God!) that it caused.

So, when your comment doesn't appear immediately, *DO NOT* throw a hissy-fit and assume I'm refusing negative comments (yes, it really happened). I approve pretty much everything that isn't obvious SPAM, negative or not, and I promise you that will include your hissy-fit comments, accusing me of a grand conspiracy to squash dissenting ideas (also really happened). The result, of course, being that you will look like a fool, and the rest of us will laugh heartily at your stupidity.
