Less than 24 hours after geologists led Washington State legislators through the various reasons why the Pacific Northwest is “unprepared for a major disaster, and how we’ve financially gutted out the very departments that could help us out” (as KING 5 reports), Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels rolled himself onto CNN’s Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer, where he answered Blitzer’s primary query—”Are you ready for floods, earthquakes, or another 9/11?”—thusly:

NICKELS: “Wolf, yes we are.”
