Have you ever been in an earthquake? The one in Los Angeles, actually I lived
in Santa Monica, in 1994 lasted 31 or 32 seconds, struck at 5:30 in the
morning, and I hope to never ever be that frightened again. The panic
afterwards goes on for days with after shocks that frazzle nerves many times
in a day. It is really difficult to compare nature's rath and how we cope
with it. Probably better to not try. Terror is terror.
