Comments about PBS Earthquakes in the Midwest: NOVA scienceNOW 2009, Episode 8 DVD:

While the title of the DVD is Earthquakes in the Midwest, it has several other subjects. They include sleep patterns in humans, mice and fruit flies, and a description of the first Primate, discovered in Montana. This should be interesting programming for all the creationists die hards! Meet what came before Adam! While the DVD shows the danger of an earthquake in the midwest near Memphis, it does not go into very much depth of the history of the failed rift valley under the Mississippi River which seems to be causing the problem. It just makes people worry when the next big one will hit the Midwest. This DVD had too many topics, although they were all interesting.
