The Earth Moves Again?

A 5.7 magnitude earthquake struck near Ottawa, Canada just a bit ago and the Tribune is reporting it was felt here in Chicago though much less than that quake in February. Our pals at Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me felt the earth move, too, as did a few of our Twitter followers. We just thought it was the continued celebration from the U.S.'s thrilling, dramatic victory over Algeria at the World Cup. Seems a bit far away to really feel it but let us know if you felt it and where you were.
