Good thing I moved up north. I caught the end of the made for TV flick 10.5. At first I thought it was a movie about my shoe size, but it wasn't. Basically this massive earthquake hit the west coast, wedging out an island of southern cali. It was an amazing spectacle. The CGI rivaled some summer blockbusters I've seen. Mother Nature swallowed a large chunk of anything sitting on her fault lines. The movie ended pretty abruptly, paralleling the shocks of the earthquake I suppose. And I know why Mr. Kent wasn't on SV last week, since he appeared in this film. In real life, native bay areans endured the Loma Prieta quake of '89, and that seemed like a mere tremble compared to destruction shown in 10.5.
