Talking about the Weather
So New Orleans got lucky with the storm missing. Democracy Now reports that the city was ready withg 10,000 Body Bags in the event of a disaster but that there were no facilities for evacuating poor people from endangered parts of the city.
Maybe that's a metaphor for the values and planning skills of our governments.
Meanwhile, according to the David Helvarg in the Tom Paine online Hournal, the United States government continues to find ways to subsidize and support irresponsible coastal development to set the stage for further disasters.
Dumb and Dumber.
