In case people elsewhere haven’t heard, L.A. got jolted with a “moderate” earthquake of 5.8 today. I called a pal out there who said it was scary for a bit, but nothing too damaging as far as he can see. Hope that remains true.
Details on CNN here.
Best joke to come out of it yet, if a bit inside-baseball, is a comment on Nikki Finke’s DEADLINE HOLLYWOOD:
“A 5.8 huh? Gee, Warner Bros. Accounting Dept. ran the profits and says it was only a 4.3.

A minor disaster, sure… but take comfort in knowing it will NOT scuttle the potential remake of TOP GUN.
