this is the global storm tracker just a minute or two ago, tracking Tropical Storm Hanna and Hurricane Gustav. You can see Gustav headed straight for New Orleans. Damn.
It seems they might be evacuating seriously this time. Maybe they learned their lesson. Maybe Bush needs to do something right so as not to completely kibosh McCain's chances. Or maybe it's all those high-powered Republicans who are in NOLA right now. Think that might be it?
I have a terrible feeling of sickness, dread, and disgust.
