A week of anniversaries...

One hundred years ago this week, San Francisco was rocked with a major earthquake that registered nearly 8.0 in magnitude, killing approximately 3,000 people, and nearly leveling the city. A similar quake today would cause untold damage and death, and experts report that it's a "not-if-but-when" scenario for those of us on the San Andreas fault. If it wasn't for McKinney, I might move to Georgia!

Also, today is the 11th Anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, leaving nearly 1,000 dead or injured. The real crime here is that they didn't execute Nichols alongside McVeigh! But hopefully, he's being bent over and rooted senseless several times a day, just as a reminder. Happy Anniversary there, Terry!

And Ranger Pat Tillman also had an anniversary of sorts this week. Maybe someday the Army will tell his family what really happened on that hill in Afghanistan. We owe them that much, at the very least!
