Delusions, faults

Even I think I'm off, that there's some slippage, but I swear I woke up at this time this morning because I heard a sharp crash. Then the birds started thrashing around for no reason, a condition in avians known as night fright, only there was nothing ostensible going on.

The quake just before 4:37 a.m. was centered six miles from West Salem, Ill., and 66 miles from Evansville, Ind.

Yes, the confluence of the Missouri and the Kaw is too far away to feel a 5.2 from the Wabash fault.
