I thought my ADCO colleagues’ imaginations were running away with them, until I read that there actually WAS an earthquake, and that it was felt in New York, and that the Pentagon was evacuated.
I never felt it. Maybe I’m desensitized because I lived on the Pacific Rim as a kid.
I especially enjoy the chauvinism indicated in this NYT report:
An earthquake sent tremors from the nation’s capital to New York City and New England Tuesday afternoon, the result of what officials said was a 5.9 magnitude earthquake based in Virginia.
Hello, New York Times! We’re down here! We exist! The world doesn’t drop off when you hit Virginia!
