110. What is significant - in my mind... is the level of cynicism
this administration has brought to a broad cross-section of people. In the past only the few would even consider such a thing. Now more people are likely to have the fleeting thought - where before it wouldn't even mentally occur.

To me - given this is an area prone to quakes - and the technological discussion on this board - no - not likely at all. And in this case the thought didn't run through my head.

But I do find it noteworthy that more and more people initially entertain these thoughts - as it is to me a sign of such mistrust - a belieft that this administration knows no boundaries (one borne out of several incidents that give this impression) - that people who used to be more skeptical of such random musing - are actual entertaining (even if quickly dismissing it) the musing. THAT I find interesting. I seriously doubt that this discussion would have gone on so long under the first bush administration. While that was not a noble or great administration - things have changed drastically since then.
