Everything was under control. Preparation is everything, he told his subordinates. Seismic readings gave adequate warning so important things were squared away and secured, unsafe buildings, evacuated. He felt quite chuffed with himself and strode down the street with a swagger. That’s when the runaway horse hit him. Didn’t anticipate that.
