Earthquake reported near the Kentucky/Tennessee border

Does the KSR curse carry over to seismic activities?

This morning, a 3.0 magnitude earthquake was reported along the Kentucky/Tennessee border near, of all towns, Middlesboro, the site of yesterday’s radio show. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the earthquake happened at 11:23 a.m. about six miles west of New Tazewell, Tennessee, which is approximately 12.5 miles south of Middlesboro, Matt’s hometown.

Apparently, you’ll only notice a 3.0 magnitude earthquake if you’re sitting still or lying down. Hanging objects may sway a little. If you did feel something, you can report it here.

Even the ground’s got something to say about Matt potentially running for office.
