A) Wake me up? The only thing that gets me outta bed in the morning is a 6.3.
B) No, but it's likely to make me more aware that we have no friggin' idea when the next one is coming.
C) "Look, honey, our house is in prime earthquake territory ... whose fault is that? Ha, ha! Get it?" (Bonus point if she/he gets it.)
7) Given what we now know about the 1906 earthquake and modern construction methods, how well do you think S.F. has applied the lessons of the great earthquake?
A) From a marketing standpoint? Brilliantly. Remind me to leave town next summer for the Summer of Love 30-year anniversary.
B) We're totally prepared. If the Big One hits, we'll all meet afterward at Lotta's Fountain.
C) That depends ... how far along was the Bay Bridge retrofit project in 1906? Wait, lemme guess: About 10 years from being finished, right?
How to score:
Score zero points for every "A" answer, one point for every "B," and two points for every "C."
0-6 points: Yes, the marriage of nostalgic city marketing and legitimate remembrance of tragedy is always awkward.
That's why I'm glad our mayor is named Oprah.
7-10 points: Can you believe how crazy it would have been to move Chinatown to the outskirts of San Francisco? All that tourist money up in smoke ...
11-14 points: Congratulations! You're a true apologist for the centennial celebration of the 1906 earthquake. See you in '09 for the Loma Prieta party!
