7.0 earthquake strikes near Vanuatu in South Pacific

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.0 struck Sunday morning off the southern tip of the South Pacific archipelago of Vanuatu, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The quake struck about 75 miles (122 km) southeast of Isangel, the administrative capital of the island of Tanna, and 134 miles (217 km) northeast of New Caledonia's Loyalty Islands.

A tsunami alert has not been issued for the South Pacific or the U.S. western coast.

    I am going to run for mayor of my city. I promise to reduce crime,reduce the debt,and reduce my kick backs.

    This is the correct way to write that ridiculous sentence:

    I am going to run for Mayor of my city.
    I promise to reduce crime, reduce the debt, and reduce my kick-backs.
    I am also being trolled by an incredibly stupid person.

    @Scottish Mama:

    We all have our trolls!
    I'm thinking there is one who specifically targets Dems.

    And it's formerly Trish, Amy...someone told me this person died years ago, but I don't know. I do know that her 2 "babies" are in middle school now...
