Sylmar Quake 1971: Gardena
Landers Quake 1992: Miracle Mile District, Los Angeles
Northridge Quake 1994: Santa Monica
1950s building. I was surprised the building survived the quake, particularly the underground carport. Lots of stuff fell over inside. Our living room TV fell to the floor. One of the last metal models, it received a dent, but continued to perform well past other subsequent TV purchases as a second TV. Neighborhood folks spent dark morning hours on lawns, waiting for aftershocks. I dared re-entry to apartment to retrieve alcoholic provisions, guarded the local liquor store from looters, and called my mother in Gardena.....

Felix the Cat is a funny animal cartoon character created in the silent film era. The anthropomorphic black cat with his black body, white eyes, and giant grin, coupled with the surrealism of the situations in which his cartoons place him, combine to make Felix one of the most recognized cartoon characters in film history. Felix was the first character from animation to attain a level of popularity sufficient to draw movie audiences.
