Shakin Bakin Canada

FIRST: My apologies if you were unable to visit in the last few days. Snafus on my personal site left it offline for a short time. Immediately following that, my hosting service crashed disrupting service to all their customers. All seems to be well now.

By now you’ve probably heard this morning’s headlines about a major earthquake in Canada last night causing tsunami warnings to be issued for Alaska, Hawaii, and the west coast. Most of those warnings have been relaxed at this time.

If you read my last column similarly titled – Shakin Bakin Debate III – you know that last week scientists in Italy were convicted on manslaughter charges for failing to give adequate warnings prior to a quake there that killed more than three hundred people – and my agreement that such predictions can be made accurately and further in advance than the current status quo.

In my opinion the good people of Italy and their court system deliberately timed those convictions in relation to the current event.

It appears to me the Canadian quake is in the near region of the widely expected “big one” in California. Changes along those fault lines most likely will shift additional stress to the high risk areas in California, perhaps making that eventuality more likely than ever.

It seems to me California, you have been warned, and woe be unto officials and real estate agents who fail to give adequate warnings.

    The Cannon Ball Run

    Never underestimate the sense of humor of city planners… except, this sidewalk was deliberately planned and constructed before the Lee High Bus massacre occurred. The intended walkway runs along Church Street in front of the City Transportation Bus Terminal, underneath the interstate ramps, and immediately adjacent to the point of impact of the Lee Bus crash.

    Charlottesville !!! It’s About The Constitution Stupid !

    And for Mr. Trump, I’ve stated my opinion that the monuments should be moved. Beyond that, I can’t possibly see how you could have handled the situation in Charlottesville any better. You’ve got my approval rating for this one.

    Mayhem In West Huntsville

    Police had the area surrounded with high powered rifles and other weapons drawn.


    Well. I don’t really react that way since I usually read the complimentary paper at the burger breakfast joint. Usually, it’s just another customer obnoxiously hogging the premium still sitting on his otherwise empty table…

    Will The Dark Side Of The Moon Be Apocalypse Now?!

    Forgive me for waxing poetic… well maybe this wrap-up should just be called “waxy.” … In short, these stories about eugenics, censorship, invasion of privacy and the impending North Korean apocalypse deserve much more attention, but the world moves on, and these stories will reappear, probably over and again. Never-the-less, I take note for the sake of doing so.

    Slum Lord Unregulated: Tommy Battle

    Which really just leaves a bunch of unanswered questions. Who owns the property? Is there even any hope of restoring the building? How can the City ignore what has become not just an eyesore, but an extremely dangerous attractive nuisance? (There was a death in the building recently, about 2 years ago, that was investigated as a suicide.) Early Works recently indicated that funding has been received in order to do major renovations to Constitution Hall Park, but no mention of the Historic Huntsville Freight Building was made.
