One of our other blogs, Act Your Old Age, has a new posting of stories accumulated in December 1990, when Iben Browning predicted a major earthquake along the New Madrid fault.

The only ground shaking happened when hundreds of reporters gathered in New Madrid, Mo., to witness the cataclysm. Our assignment: Travel the fault line and file dispatches from five states in as many days.

We hit, in order: Black Oak, Ark., Braggadocio, Mo., Fort Pillow, Tenn., Oscar, Ky. and Future City, Ill. The Kentucky dispatch was especially memorable because it included a stop in Monkey's Eyebrow.

Read all about it here. Fun times.
