    Third earthquake in 3 weeks, same places, new damages. Glad to see Diego Luna, Gael, and Del Toro helping. Diego´s at ground zero.

      Sure thing. I´m safe and far from the quakes, but we are all on an emotional rollercoaster her. So much good, so much bad, so much sadness, so much hope. Mostly though so much solidarity.

      Thank you, i´m ok physically, but emotionally i´m pretty shaken and saddend. Not to mention i´m not pissed off at how the government is doing so little to help. It´s the common people who are doing all the work.

    Glad to hear you're okay. Sounds terrible on the news. Of course, we're particularly sensitive to earthquakes anywhere in the world, given we still have streets closed from a quake 7 years ago...Stay safe.

    Terrible for Mexico. Fortunately for me, my city is not an earthquake city.
  10. Quillwitch

    As always Mexico City and some of the poorest regions were hit badly. 8.5 and 7.1 apparently.

    So it´s our turn now. 2 major earthquakes in mexico nearly back to back within a week.

      Mostly it means my dentist could sell a glass of water to a drowning man. He's got a captive audience, and I can just hear him raving about the books to his poor patients, while they're wide open and gagging on their own spit.

      I say that in a good way, really. He's a lovely man, and simply enthusiastic about life. We've been trading garden produce for years, and he once gave me a filling in exchange for a block of my homemade cheese.

    Okay. Life is just weird sometimes. I've now sold more books through my dentist than I have through the bookstore my books are at.
