Flooding is still an issue in New Orleans and the report of Katrina tearing a hole in the roof of the Superdome sounded ominous. The city isn’t out of trouble yet, but it’s nice to see that predicted reports of New Orleans’ utter destruction were greatly exaggerated.
The “Great Satan” wobbles, but doesn’t fall. Hear that, Enemies? I’m even will to bet that we’ll weather (no pun intended) the consequent shortage of oil and the upswing in its price. After all, it’s only the law of supply and demand in action, with an act of God tossed in for excitement.
Let’s face it. It was supposed to be worse.
Meanwhile, pray for those who are still in Katrina’s path. She’s still a raging bag of wind and water.
UPDATE: Evil Progressive asks:
Why do you have to politicize natural disasters?Hmm, I've looked up and down this short post and found nothing about politics. There is a mention about America's enemies, but there's nothing political about that. Perhaps Evil Progressive has a guilty conscience. Confession's good for the soul, EP.
UPDATE: 6:56 PM PDT For those who didn't notice, this isn't the most recent post regarding the disaster wrought by Hurricane Katrina. As has been noted in subsequent posts, the situation has worsened.
