Death and destruction! Yay!
It's the 100-year anniversary of the Great Quake, so how does the city celebrate its most tragic and scarring event?

A parade!

It's not entirely morbid, though. The day has been more a celebration of the rebirth of the city. It's also given me a chance to see a lot of photos of collapsed houses, which really helps me sleep at night.

One other thing on le menu:

1) I'm on the Google shuttle bus, and I just saw a guy in the next freeway lane in a pickup by himself playing a harmonica. It made me smile, as I do that when I drive. I can't sing or make music when I'm on the bus.
Next week Saturday is A) Crazylegs and B) Mifflin.

As a matter of fact I can say without a doubt that everyone you know will be in town.

Well, maybe just me.
In Anchorage, we have a park celebrating (commemorating?) the 1964 Good Friday quake.
