Seismologists have already found the cause of the 5.8 magnitude earthquake that shook the hell out of Washington and the east coast. There is a major fault line that originates near Richmond Virginia, and runs through Washington DC. We liberals proclaim it to be Bush’s Fault 🙂

8.9 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Japan, Triggers Massive Tsunami.

An earthquake hit off the eastern coast of Japan that measured 8.9 on the richter scale. There was an ensuing tsunami that sent a 22 foot wall of water several miles inland, killing over 300 people and causing major damage in Northern Japan. The death toll is expected to rise exponentially. In addition to Japan, the quake has triggered tsunami warnings throughout the Pacific Rim, including the west coast of North America.

My heart goes out to the Japanese people today, please keep them in your thoughts as well.
