I remember that day well. I missed the whole fucking thing!

At the time, I was living in San Leandro (just a few miles north of the ^^ that ^^). About an hour before the earthquake, I boarded a plane to Chicago for a long-deserved vacation.

As we were reaching altitude, the pilot made an announcement:

Ladies and gentlemen, you're all probably wondering about the score at Candlestick Park right now. I do not have that information, but we have just received word that a massive earthquake has hit the Bay Area. The only confirmed report of damage we have at this time is that the Bay Bridge has collapsed.

1975 - Does any one know where the love of God goes
When the waves turn the minutes to hours?
The searchers all say they'd have made Whitefish Bay
If they'd put fifteen more miles behind her
They might have split up or they might have capsized
They may have broke deep and took water
And all that remains is the faces and the names
Of the wives and the sons and the daughters

It was Yamamoto Tsunetomo, author of the Hagakure, who asked the well known question: "What if, nine months after Asano's death, Kira had died of an illness?" His answer was that the forty-seven rōnin would have lost their only chance at avenging their master. Even if they had claimed, then, that their dissipated behavior was just an act, that in just a little more time they would have been ready for revenge, who would have believed them? They would have been forever remembered as cowards and drunkards—bringing eternal shame to the name of the Asano clan. The right thing for the rōnin to do, wrote Yamamoto, was to attack Kira and his men immediately after Asano's death. The rōnin would probably have suffered defeat, as Kira was ready for an attack at that time—but this was unimportant.
