The Sunday report in the Lancaster Newspapers on the earthquake began its article as follows:
[Name withheld by me] of Ridge Road, Mount Joy Township, was in the bathtub when, he said, "I felt it in my butt. It vibrated."
I'm not kidding - who could make this up?
I know animals are reputed to sense impending earthquakes. I wonder if this is a corresponding human trait? Or was that guy just playing around in the bathtub at midnight on a Saturday?
And how could a reporter and an editor possibly let an article start that way? I guarantee, you would never find that particular wording about an earthquake here in the SF Bay area where I'm spending the week.
Hoping the New Year brings you all good vibrations!
