Here we go again

Oh heck, another storm is threatening my region of the US.  And Gustav looks like it might plow into Louisana.  Let me tell you, in case you don’t know, whenver Louisiana is threatened (b/c of the horror of Catrina)….the people that are entrusted with providing disaster relief in this Country get really, really nervous.  When are […]
