Former Arizona Congressman Jim Kolbe, Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh Have Lunch Interrupted By Christchurch Earthquake; Susan Bayh Nearly Killed

Here is a scary tale bringing the disastrous Christchurch earthquake closer to home.  Former Arizona Rep. Jim Kolbe (R-Tucson) was in New Zealand's second-largest city this week and was at a trade lunch when the temblor hit.  He, Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh and the rest of their group escaped unharmed, but Bayh's wife, Susan, was evacuating from the nearby hotel when a wall fell and killed a woman in front of her. 

Also interesting to learn that the longtime Arizona Congressman now partly owns a bed and breakfast elsewhere in the south Pacific nation.
