| July 30, 2008

So yeah, as most SoCal people know, there was an earthquake yesterday, measured at 5.4 Mw, with some reporting a period of 20 seconds.  I was in the middle of the street walking to my car when it happened.

But’a Italy, Itsa Sucha Nice Place!

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/jul/17/italy.g8/print This is why we need to be vigilant over government powers. Thankfully America hasn’t gotten to this point against its own citizens, though non-citizens seem to be fair game these days.
