Fire and Earthquake Anniversary #1 -- April 18, 2008

I woke up at 3:30 this morning. I thought: If I get up now I can make it to Lotta's Fountain in plenty of time to make the ceremony. I thought this might be the last year we have a survivor at the ceremony. I went back to sleep. I feel ashamed.
The radio went off at 5:29. They were talking about an earthquake in the midwest. It was only 5-point-something. It was not on the New Madrid Fault, but on a tributary. There were no injuries and not too much damage.
I was stuck inside all day at work, so I didn't even get to go see the wreath.
iPod stuff: The current Baseball History Podcast ( -- the definition of "Major League.". The current BBC History Magazine podcast ( -- a book about Anglo-Dutch relations and a historian who talked about John Churchill's campaigns.
