Anniversary Present?

With Tropical Strom Ernesto’s strength and path still up in the air, according to this CBS/AP article New Orleans Told Levees May Not Hold.

If Ernesto becomes a hurricane and strikes near New Orleans all bets are off regarding possible flooding in the city. Until you are sure the levees will hold, you are really taking a chance rebuilding.

I forgot to mention the problem even a tropical storm will cause for those living in FEMA trailers. They should pack all of their personal stuff in heavy duty garbage bags and look for some place else to wait out a storm.

Sudan charges Tribune ace with writing ‘false news’ – “A Pulitzer Prize-winning foreign correspondent for the Chicago Tribune was charged in a Sudanese court Saturday with espionage and other crimes.” “[Paul] Salopek was working on a freelance assignment for National Geographic magazine during his arrest.”

Witnesses: 2 Israeli missiles hit Reuters car.

Someone needs to tell the Sudanese government and Israeli military that this is not the path to good “ink”.
