Quake jitters

David L. Ulin has a new book coming in July on earthquake prediction -- and the op-ed in today's L.A. Times to prove it.

Where were you on Jan. 17, 1994?

I was huddled in my bedroom doorway, cleaved to my wife, riding out the jagged shaking, wondering when it would stop. Ten years later, I can't forget that moment, but then I wouldn't want to; it's become a part of who I am.

The book is The Myth of Solid Ground: Earthquakes, Prediction, and the Fault Line Between Reason and Faith," from Viking Penguin. On a personal note, let me just say, damn I wish I'd thought of that. Sounds good, and always timely.

William Campbell has a page up at Wildbell.com on the Northridge quake, which struck 10 years ago tomorrow: All Fall Down
