Being a weather junkie, I was glued to the television, radio, the Weather Channel, the NYT - anyplace I could get a fix.

Now it's Friday and I need to get some sleep. I cannot even begin to feel the pain of the people still trapped. This is a disaster of epic proportions, and the polititians (with except few) are twiddling their thumbs while people die. Who's the designated Rudy Guiliani for this event? It feels like no one is in charge.

In listening to Bush's televised address yesterday, it did not strike me as being his best moment. What did stick with me (maybe I was addled by lack of sleep) was that he mentioned oil and gas much more than he mentioned the human cost. If any of you out there were keeping count, let me know. I'll post them here. Or over at my weather blog.

In the mean time, I'm off to take and ativan (lots of anxiety) and a hydrocodone (f-ed up back) and sleep. I'll says some prayers first because I'm grateful I'm alive and well and warm, and so is all my family.

On an unusual note, those of you who know me know I have a brother names George who is a walking one man destruction crew. Last week he fell off a three story building, landed on a truck and

bruised his bum.

Lucky bastard, and he knows it!


  1. I hate to be a Rudy booster, but they can really use him!

    Didn't watch his speach, can't even watch TV

    Like your blog and your taste in music

  2. I've been waiting for a Rudy to appear. I'm watching Ray Nagin closely. Gosh he's had his whole city go under. He's stressed now, but I'm waiting to see what the next few weeks bring.
