Oklahoma M3.7 earthquake, back to the first mechanism

Well, we're back to the future, with the standard earthquakes for the first mechanism.

They might as well just cast these solutions with a rubber stamp.  :)  This line has strike-slip with some tension.  We should be getting 4's with the identical stamp.

As I'm constantly whining about, we need matched thrusts to keep this up.  Remember, by definition, if we didn't have a sustaining (growing) mechanism, these things would just peter out.

Addition:  First reported as 4.1, now everything is getting discounted, time to recalibrate.
