Well, basically, it was because of Gangs.
And this thread by Latif Nasser was equally fascinating, where geological movements and social movements intertwine.
The US election is tomorrow. If you, like me, are tired of horse-race-style reporting, and need to zoom out, I wanna tell you a story. It’s about an ancient force influencing the election.

Jackson’s death galvanized the Civil Rights Movement, inspiring the legendary Selma to Montgomery Marches the next month. The ground they marched on contains what geologists call Selma Chalk, which also dates back to the Cretaceous.
