Leonard was on the air when yesterday's earthquake shook New York! He remained calm when he mentioned it, and when the shaking stopped he went back to wrapping up his interview with Mark Matousek on morals and ethics.
Leonard Lopate: Now I don't know if you felt this room trembling as I just did. There is the possibility that we just experienced a bit of an earthquake.
Mark Matousek: Or the subway.
LL: No. the subway doesn't..wouldn't do that to this room. It's never happened before.
MM: Is that true?
LL: Yeah. I'm wondering whether we're going to learn something after the show about earthquakes in Manhattan, something I didn't know could even happen.
MM: Well I'm from California. I don't even notice them anymore.
