MY FIRST LA EARTHQUAKE
I was on the phone with Matthew Holt when my chair felt like it was shaking. I thought it was the pesky landscaping and waste trucks that go by right outside our bungalow on Willey Lane in West Hollywood. Within seconds CNN's breaking news said it was a magnitude 5.8 earthquake. Later in the afternoon, health system at the Whole Foods' fish counter, infection a small group of us shared our earthquake stories. For the next 24 hours, there's a not insignificant chance that there will be a bigger one.
