Hurricane Gustav

No posts until this hits and is (somewhat) over. This isn't a time to be witty--just a time to pray.

Paul (Alive and Young), our blogging NOLA resident, I hope you're OK.

My prayers are with the people of New Orleans and the gulf coast but...

as Jerry Falwell might well say if he was still living - Isn't it odd that God sends another massive hurricane into NOLA during the GOP national convention to remind Americans of the failures of the Republican administration of George Bush during Katrina???

OK, in all fairness, Mr Falwell wouldn't ask a question. He would just flat out say it is a sign from God.

No worries. I made it out alive and well. Got my mom and grandmother to take care look after. Made it out with only a few shingles from the roof missingl Though for a while, I thought I'd be returning home to a flooded house. Besides from the occasional tornado and massive power outage, I think the state fared out well.

Now, if this Ike thing can just go back and die in the Atlantic that would be great.

Our Lady of Prompt Succor, we are lost unless you hasten to our help.

Also, david, I find it more ironic that it happened at almost the same weekend as the Decadent Festival in the French Quarter, which was the same weekend as Katrina.

P.S. Thanks for the prayers.

Glad you're well, Paul.

Yeah, I suppose lots of people are saying "I DON'T like Ike."
