What would papa say?

When the earth moved during the 65th annual scientific session of the American Diabetes Association in June, no one was thinking about Ernest Hemingway's metaphor for sexual climax. Daryl Lawson, M.D., of Loma Linda University was in the middle of presenting his research data on diabetic foot wounds when a 5.6-magnitude earthquake rattled the San Diego convention center. Unnerved attendees scrambled for the hallway, returning to their seats after a few minutes when no further jolts were felt. Before resuming his talk, Dr. Lawson reflected on the jarring events: "I never gave such a moving talk." Was it good for you, too?
