The night of the Bay Area earthquake, I was talking with a real-estate
agent I asked her what she thought would happen to house prices in the
Bay, given the quake.  She said ``The number of people moving in to
California has been decreasing, and in general, prices are so high that
housing is levelling off.''

Her husband, who was watching the quake news on TV said ``Literally!''

October 17, 1989, San Francisco, CA (late afternoon):

1. Unknown fan in Candlestick Park: "It would take an Act of God to keep
   the Giants from losing here today."

2. Major earthquake hits the Bay Area, damaging the two stadiums, the
   major freeway and bridge connecting them and, incidentally, postponing
   the game.

3. Several million residents wish that the unknown fan would be more
   precise in what he wishes for!

every city he visits?
