I'm not a major science buff. I didn't even like taking science classes much when I was in school. Nevertheless, given my location in Western Kentucky, most of us are well aware of the New Madrid fault line we're living on. Most of us also know what to expect should that fault line begin to shake, rattle and roll. Edward Casey, who is famous for his prophecies, and also hails from Western Kentucky/Hopkinsville, predicted long ago that the New Madrid fault will erupt some time around 2012. Now we have the Army Corp of Engineers blowing up our levees around here to relieve the flooding. Since we know that the BP drilling has done some damage at the tip of the fault line, what kind of an impact on the fault can we expect from setting off all these explosives directly along the fault line? I'll be honest, this really makes me nervous. I've seen the models of maps that show how the Navy expects our continent to look after such an earthquake. The half of Kentucky where I live will be wiped off the map. So will parts of Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Tennessee, and Mississippi. Scary stuff, to say the least.
