"Each time I've met Huffington, I wondered if she was not somehow the long-lost daughter of Madame Nicolai Ceaucescu, or a genetic cross between Martha Stewart and Count Dracula. Had this Greek-born harpy lived in medieval times, she would have been sewn up in a bag with a rooster and two snakes and thrown into the nearest river." -- Eric Margolis, Toronto Star
The Haiti quake was 7.0. This one is 8.8. A 9.0 would be 100x more powerful than a 7.0, so this would be 80x, at least accoring to the Richter scale. The tsunami warning was on our weather today - that's just insane. Hopefully it turns out OK.
