UNSHAKEN

Regarding "Rubble-Rousing" (Three on the Town, by Jonathan Gold, Feb. 27), I too was out of town when the earthquake hit. And I'm not upset that a bunch of freeways and buildings collapsed. What I can't stand is that everywhere I go, people can't stop talking about their stupid little earthquake experiences. Fine. The first one or two times I heard these stories, they were interesting. Now they're just boring. I'm sorry that people lost their homes and their lives, but I wish the rest of you would just stop yammering about your petty seismic run-ins and get on with your lives.
