The first time I tried to post that question Topix warned me not to use profanity!

Was it "bangs" or "overthrust"?

Was it as good for you as it was for the rest of us?

I think what is going on is that the weight of all the new folks moving up from Maryland is pressing on that old fault zone, and when that 'tipping point" family arrives and moves into that latest ticky-tack McMansion, the whole ridgeline is gonna' slide north under the next plate, scrape off all the people, and then, because all that extra weight is gone, it'll slide back up, all fresh and clean, and the developers will have a new start at selling bad housing to a new set of "White-Platers" from Baltimore County! How's THAT for a theory?
