Every once in a while, and lately, it seems, more frequently than usual, Earth likes to step in and remind us who is really in charge.

Your hole is nothing compared to the one Earth made on itself this weekend in Guatemala City, swallowing a building and an entire intersection. That's right. Earth always has the power to blow your mind and upend your belief in things you think are certain, and don't you forget it. Who else do you think is responsible for this Al and Tipper thing?
