Shake ‘n Quake

My pal & Avant-Popster Larry McCaffery just returned from a field trip into the baja to survey the fault scarp left by the 7.2 quake that hit near Borrego on Easter.

“It was truly an awesome, mind-blowing sight: at the first place we stopped at, there was 8 feet of displacement–i.e., a huge block of land was raised 8 feet.  We later stopped at a place along the highway that had been ripped out.” 

Yow, imagine what the big one will do.
