Regarding the protest at the proposed nuclear reactor site at Bodega Bay it 
is my understanding that there actually was a minor earthquake in the area 
during the demonstration.

The song "San Andreas Fault" was written by Lu and is on the "Bodega" 

The song is also know by another name . . . "San Andreas Shake." There is 
some question as to which is the original title (San Andreas Fault or San 
Andreas Shake).

The Cell Block 7 has been playing it for a few months now and it has become 
one of my favorite songs.
