Just Because it's a Natural Disaster...

...doesn't mean the AP can't write stupid headlines. Actual headline for an article about the quake: "Quake Sparked by Slipping Geologic Plates."
Really? An earthquake - caused by slipping geologic plates? Fasicinating, AP, and very informative (though the article itself is not bad - a better one, though, is the always-excellent Joel Achenbach's article in the WaPo).
Seriously, though, this is just silliness - phrasing the headline in typical "breaking-news" fashion, as if they just found out that this earthquake, of all earthquakes, was caused by slipping geologic plates.
