ok fine, so i dont react all omg omg to earthquakes,

but everyone in the world does

and our fine paper covered it beautifully. and to be honest, it was sorta awesome to be in the belly of the beast as they covered it.

on our local blog, LA Now we had almost 20 posts from all over LA

we had a pretty sizable photo gallery of damage and reaction

we had a message board of over 1,000 comments ranging from the insightful to the humorous

a story about what closed and what was delayed cuz of the tremblah

a story on how the phone system in LA got waaaay overloaded

we had a map of the 10 biggest quakes in So Cal

and we have a cool flash player to teach you how to quake proof yr home

its tuesday which means ICU day at the times

and if it seems like im the vice president of the katy newton fan club, that could indeed be the case. i just really enjoy video journalism and its easy to cut and paste into m’ blawwwwg

speaking of which i wanna send out a long distance shoutout to my girls danielle who is heartbroken but still blawwwwgin in san dieger, and my bff flagrant who has been mia somewhere (america? asia? antartica?) for more than a month and i dont really like it. my prayers are with both of you.

while we’re saying prayers, light a candle for The Pants’ little sister who has found herself in the city of angels and who needs a job, a new bf, and a better event planner than the one who set her up with a prince.
