For some reason, I’m fascinated by human reaction to events. Take last night’s earthquake, for example. Most of my local friends not only felt it (it woke most of us up) but almost immediately commented on Facebook (as did I). In casual conversation with people all over the United States, much of it turns to natural disasters. So I ask: “What would you prefer, earthquakes or tornados?” Almost without exception the folk in tornado country prefer tornados, with little to no hesitation. Many of us in earthquake country prefer earthquakes.
If anyone reads this, please post your choice and (if you feel so inclined) your reason for that choice.
