Earthquake!!!

Um, did anyone else feel that?

Yeah, the big red one.

About an hour ago, I was sitting on my bed chuckling at the fake picture of rifle-toting Sarah Palin in her American flag bikini when my bed started shaking. I turned around quickly, worried some disapproving Republican had jumped through my open window and landed on my bed, but I couldn't see anybody. (A brief and terrifying image of Kevin Bacon's character from Hollow Man entered my mind). But then a roommate directed me to http://quake.usgs.gov/recenteqs/ -- a website that documents recent earthquakes -- and sure enough there had been a 4.0 in Alamo.

What do you guys say? Should we San Franciscans go fight the earthquake in Alamo so we don' t have to fight it at home?--Ashley Harrell
