    What in the heck is going on? Is our world turned upside down? Kind of, but not really. Folks in the central United States, otherwise known as the Mississippi Valley, are being encouraged to prepare for catastrophic earthquakes. And while the fear may seem unfounded, science is actually speaking to the contrary. A new program called “Shake It Out” is encouraging mass participation in earthquake preparedness events from Ohio all the way down through the southern state of Louisiana.

    How do you want to go out?

    In a blaze of glory?

    Or in a nursing home, drinking your meals through a tube, and the kids never visit?

    Bring on the earthquakes!

    They don't have CA building codes, do they? Or they did'nt. Those 100 yr old brick buidings are going to crumble around STL, for example.

    So?

    Who's fault is that?

    The people in California were smart. They enacted proper zoning laws for buildings to withstand an earthquake. They passed laws that reinforced old buildings to withstand earthquakes.

    My state did the same thing.

    If Ohio and the midwest were too stupid and cheap to pass proper zoning laws and spend the proper amount of money to make their buildings safe from Mother Nature, that's their own fault.

    Looks to me like they better get off their butts, take a crow bar to their wallets and start taking the proper steps to make their buildings able to withstand an earthquake.

    I've been to Portland, Sea-Tacoma. I lived in Eugene-Elmira. They are not ready for a 7.0 either? Are they?
