Evanston: terrifying?; a Republican?; reduced; photo added
I am indebted to Wayne for a link to an animation of shock waves from the April 1 earthquake in Chile.
I’ve watched it several times and find the patterns fascinating, particularly the echoes bouncing back toward the source and the confusion when the leading waves reach islands and shallower water as off New Zealand.
Also interesting is that someone who has clearly been spending way too much time staring at artificial displays and has totally lost contact with the real world labels this ‘terrifying.’
I agree with Wayne that ‘terrific’ is better.
The N.Y. TIMES recently ran three interesting charts—not nautical.
They could lead to the conclusion that Barack Obama is a Republican.
I have reduced the items on my immediate ‘to do’ list to zero by deciding not to do them. This is efficient, effective, and satisfying.
I added the above Steve Earley photo, for which I thank him, to the GANNET page.
