Kind of a dumb question Stan. This is on par with the idiot CNN reporter asking the people of Japan "How scary has this been for you?".

I thought this would be an interesting article but instead I thought it lame. Could you not find anyone, anyone, who has gone through something to share??? More like just posting some pretty girls.

I think Stan did a good job of finding people with a varity of experiences - I expected to see a lot of Loma Prieta stories. I also imagine it's somewhat difficult to find people who have been through devestating natural disasters in the Blackhawk Plaza.
