Wow you guys are merciless.
Doesn't the New Madrid zone really not have many quakes of that size? That would make it noteworthy in my mind.
Thanks for posting OP.

To illustrate what the original poster was saying - the area of this earthquake, and New Madrid, MO is almost exactly in the center from the Colorado / DC earthquakes from August 23rd.
Bare with me, I spent 5 minutes editing this graphic and got the data from USGS website:
The exact midway point it basically the 37 degrees N / 91 degrees W. As you can see, this is almost exactly where this quake was.
I'm not saying there's a connection to a comet or anything, or planetary alignments, I just thought the midway point seeing this was interesting, particularly since it is almost one month to the day and people are freaking out about 9/23 tomorrow/later today.edit on 22-9-2011 by idk42 because: not sure how to embed a picture here yetedit on 22-9-2011 by idk42 because: typos?

OP didn't say it was the end of the world, just stated there was an earthquake and the coincidence of the area of the quake. Give the guy a break geez. He didn't say mega quake, didn't say we're all gonna die so cut him some slack.
I also don't understand why this is in general conspiracy
