Greetings from San Francisco

I’m in San Francisco for a few days for a family get-together. It’s the usual beautiful summer here, with clear skies and only an intermittent bit of the fog for which the city is famous, just enough to give a slightly mysterious atmospheric mist now and then.

I arrived very late Thursday night and didn’t get to the house where I’m staying until the wee hours of the morning. Between the rigors of travel and the late hour, by the time I finally got to sleep I was fairly well-zonked.

Which explains why the earthquake failed to even wake me up.

The next morning people were talking about it. As earthquakes go, it was relatively mild, but there was enough of a kick in it that even the natives woke up, sat up, and took notice. Not me.

This, however, continues a long tradition of mine, which is this: far more often than chance would dictate, a noticeable earthquake occurs within twelve hours of my appearance in any city in the state of California. So, perhaps I should issue an alert when I’m about to arrive.

    Earthquake, hmmmmm?

    Possibly your visit to the left coast has/will cause some sort of a Harmonic Convergence?

    It always seems to rain in vegas whenever I show up…. which sort of works for me because its too hot most of the time…

    The very earth trembles at your greatness, Neo.

    How long until the trolls on this very blog blame Bush for the earthquake?

    Cappy,
    You mean Project HAARP ‘didn’t’ have anything to do with it? Only a Stalinist can’t see it.

    Having lived in Barstow for many years…and gone through several of the latest ‘bigger’ quakes, I understand what you are saying. Sometimes one can sleep right through them and wake to a mess in the house and wonder what the hell happened. :) Glad to know you survived it all unscathed, and rested, Neo! Enjoy your time on the west coast……we’ll be ready to welcome you back soon.

    Mr. “Goldwater”‘s spoiler is about as real as a wooden galleon. (For a real laugh, check userfriendly.org’s comic for Sunday 7/22/2007. Conspiracy theorists welcome.)

    There were 5 earthquakes in L.A. when I lived there; I never felt any of ‘em…but while passing through on my way to Asia back in ’97, I was awakened by one. Maybe it was more intense

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
