Oklahoma earthquake M3.0 - somewhat isolated

Like some of the others, this seems far away from most of the action, and the deep geologic structure as I have guessed it.  Unlike Texas, I have good faith in the location.  To me, it just shows how close is the general stress field to be triggered.  I can't imagine the geology required to have an infinite number of M3's without an M4, but I am now going to tempt Fate by issuing a statement of absolute certainty:

We will have M3's forever in Oklahoma and Texas, and never anything bigger.  Therefore, there is no cause for concern.*

* I must point out that my wife says I am always wrong when I say something like this, such as "No way it's going to rain!"
