Reporter: "Meanwhile, Obama could not be reached for comment on the golf course. The White House did stress they were aware of the situation and would develop a plan as soon as they had a chance to think about the situation. On the Senate floor Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid demand that a committee investigate the earthquake to report to the President before any formal plans are presented. There is speculation that the President may appoint a Quake Czar."

What are you talking about jeneO? It said late Saturday, and I felt it at home because I LIVE here, and the whole room was shaking, about 930pm or so. So try checking your facts, it was an earthquake, why are you talking about an eruption? And at a completely different time? Why don't you all leave us alone out here? It's weird you all are in love with the crab boats.
