Goodnight Irene

After watching Hurricane Irene jink and jive up the east coast for a couple of days now we now see that it has officially passed into Canada as a tropical storm. Now when Hurricane Ike hit my area 3 years ago it was bad, but I cannot imagine a storm taking out an entire coast as it stayed over water practically the whole way.

Millions are without power.

Some people died.

Others are now homeless.

And . . . and . . .to top it all off, the theater industry just had a miserable weekend with box office sales down a full 20% over the same weekend last year, and down 26% from last weekend.

What a catastrophe.

Ah, but it sure took people's minds off of the economy, jobs, the 2012 elections...but maybe reminded them of the things they expect government to do for them when there's a crisis...for a second maybe.
