As of this writing, it’s looking more and more like a major hurricane will hit New Orleans for the second time in four years. I’ve already read a couple of sites speculating about the “delicious irony” of seeing a split-screen GOP convention, with hurricane-ravaged footage on one side of the screen. I’m sorry, but this isn’t the time to be scoring cheap political points. These are people’s lives and livelihoods we’re talking about here.

That’s not to say that I think we shouldn’t hold people responsible for their failings in Katrina, or anything of the sort. I just hope something happens so that it’s not so bad this time around, and if the worst does happen, I hope the response is worlds better this time than it was last time. I don’t care who it helps or hurts politically — that’s the least of my worries. The people of the Gulf Coast are all that matters right now. The petty politics can be sorted out later.

    Exactly. It seems to be a “so far, so good” situation. Anyone hoping for political points from a natural hazard like a hurricane deserves a punch in the junk.

    I lectured in a natural hazards course on nature and politics and I always point out that there is one thing that a hurricane or an earthquake is not: ironic. Just because we give a hurricane a human name doesn’t mean that that the hurricane does anything human.

    Ohh too bad you’re wrong. I hate the State, not just Party Red over Party Blue you dumb statist groveler. Stop being pissed that your team isn’t in charge – I tire of your drivel.

    I’m going to defer to the site owner to determine whether or not a good, hearty “fuck off” is in order. Suffice it to say that if you think that I would have derived any pleasure from New Orleans being hit, you’d be fully deserving of some sort of nasty lower bowel infection.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
