Hurricane Potpourri

President Bush and Vice President Cheney have announced that they will not attend the Republican National Convention, because they will be too busy personally supervising the government response to Hurrican Gustav. What an unlucky surprise! If Hurrican Gustav hadn't happened, they would have announced that they wouldn't attend the convention because they would be too busy washing their hair. There's no way the Republicans want Bush or Cheney within 1000 miles of their convention.

Meanwhile, here is the official public advisory from the National Weather Service regarding Hurrican Gustav. Have these people not changed their technology since 1970? What's up with the all-capital letters, courier font, and every phrase ending with ellipses (. . .) ? Can't you just see this coming off your teletype, with the selectric typeball clattering away?

At least FEMA is no longer headed by someone whose main expertise was Arabian horses.
