Northridge Quake: 15 Years Later

Can you believe it was 15 years ago this morning that a 6.7 magnitude quake with an epicenter near the interesection of Saticoy and Reseda Boulevard in Reseda struck. Seventy-two people died as a result of the earthquake with more than 9,000 injured. In addition, the earthquake caused an estimated $20 billion in damage, making it one of the costliest natural disasters in U.S. history.

Where were you when the quake happened? What are your memories? Do you think we are better or worse prepared for a similar disaster than we were 15 years ago?

Below are some vintage newsclips from the day's events.

It is Saturday morning and there's still no Zuma Dogg on Night Line.

ZUMA DOGG: what is up with your not having been on Night Line? Some of us are beginning to think you're lying about ABC.

Some of us also think you're not really the economist you bill yourself as? Where have you been employed as an economist?

Please provide a straight answer to these two simple questions.

The Nightline segment was set to air on Wed. I didn't see the show, but it probably got bumped by Bin Laden's message. Does that constitute a lie in your book. I am told the segment is going to air. They'll let me know when. After it airs, the video should be on the ABCNews.com website and I'll post it along with the ZumaCam footage.

Regarding, "economist" on the ballot: As you know, each candidate gets to put down their occupation description. I looked at a list of all the different desccriptions that have been used in the past (probably a hundred or more) and I tried to pick something that best described me.

Based on my published work on Dr. W. Edwards Deming 14 points and the "economic miracle" that it created in Japan, and since that has been the most influential force in my life, to this day; and based on my predictions of the world wide economy and it's effect on the local city economy, I put "economist." Which means, someone who studies the economy.

I had to write a description as to why I consider myself to be an economist, and the City Attorney's office approved it.

Christ almighty, Zuma Dogg. You are not an economist just because you claim to "study" it.

Where is your work published, other than a blog you control?

Seriously man, this is the problem with a person like you. You want to be see as a straight shooter, but your claim of being an economist is misleading. I have little doubt that you, for example, understand how the international monetary fund works. If you do, let's hear a little bit about its influence on local economies.

Jack Kyser is an economist. You are a good person, who isn't.

I was published in Quality Digest on the topic. And again, Deming sent a rare letter of praise. It is not YOU, the whiny crybaby, that is the end all be all decider of all things. We all recognize your crybaby patterns. So if I were you, I would not vote for Zuma Dogg because he put "economist" on the ballot designation. I think you should vote for Antonio again.

I am sorry that your definition of "economist" does not match up with the dictonary or city attorney's office.

Saying "economist" is not like saying "lawyer" or "doctor". And "economist" can be "an economical person" or "someone who studies the economy."

Again, sorry things don't always go your way...but at the end of the day, if ZD is anything, he is an economist. And there doesn't seem to be a better economist in the country when it came to predicting this economic situation in '09.

Sorry you are such a loser.
Dr. Deming sent me a rare letter of praise, that people didn't even think was real, because he just doesn't send out letters like that. IT WAS REAL. PEOPLE'S MINDS WERE BLOWN.

If you would like to know where the economy will be this time in six months, or a year...let me know. I am one of the world's foremost economy experts, with a track record to prove it (you've seen my predictions).

I don't think Jack Keyser posseses any magic insight.

There is no knowledge without prediciton. - W. Edwards Deming.

I don't think anyone nailed it the way I did. I will put my predictions up against Kyser or anyone in the city. THERE IS NO ONE WHO CAN FUCKING TOUCH ME ON THIS TOPIC IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY. Sorry, I just feel that way, and feel that I have the track record of predictions to prove it.

So go find some guy who tells you what already happened and bow down to him. ANY DUMMY CAN TELL YOU WHAT ALREADY HAPPENED. ZUMA DOGG IS THE PERSON WHO TELLS YOU WHAT WILL BE HAPPENING NEXT...

AND OVER THE COURSE OF MY LIFE...I have proven to be sheer magic when it comes to this. It is my biggest blessing and my biggest curse. Just because ZD is funny doesn't mean he's a joke. I'm as un-joke as it gets, you emotionally weak pussy. Ask the mayor. Ask City Council.

You are so dumb. You got fooled by my image and didn't even know you were fucking with someone who comes around once in a generation, or so. HA!

Jack Keyeser is no more of an economist than Zuma Dugg or even Don Quixote.

An economic person?

You mean that someone who clips coupons is an economist? I guess Zuma Dug is an economist.

Get over it bro. You lied on your application. You're finished as an economist!

Dude, you've never earned dime-one as an economist. You couldn't get a job being economical, let alone an economist. You aren't fit to be Jack Keyser's secretary.
