This is a non-story. So was the "rattler" in San Jose the other day. When they get into the 5 catagory -- now THAT'S a story. Living in California is like living on jello. The little rattlers are actually fun.

GKate writes this is a non-story. Okay, the discovery of a here-to-fore unknown fault is not news? Sorry, but I think that when you discover new places moving, which for the last couple thousands years have not moved, this is big news.
Try putting the story into context, hello?

How do we know this hasn't moved in the last couple thousand years? You know about some technology I don't? Talk about context -- hello?
