Girl Isaac's a- comin, you better hide
Have to give the folks down in New Orleans credit at least they still have a sense of humor. Hat tip to Editilla of the New Orleans Ladder for the graphic.
The best laid plans of men and mice. I don't know how the rest of that goes but the meaning is simple. You can plan and prepare till you're blue in the face and still never know the unexpected. However to their discredit the "leaders" that be in that state are not too bright in my opinion. This time around there'll be no place to evacuate to should the worst hit. The sports stadium and convention center will be locked tighter then a Catholic girls' legs on her first date. Not a smart move if you ask me. Anyone who's done any type of emergency response knows that there always must be a plan B and if they're really smart a C and a D. But these dim wits think that somehow they can magically transport thousands of people in a matter of hours with buses and trains. Tell that to grandma in a wheel chair at the end of the month. The next SS check won't be due till next week.
Then there's the whiners who think nothing of complaining about government hand outs raising a stink because the FEMA funds are not in their hot little hands. To his credit Obama has already declared the gulf a potential disaster area three days before the storm was due to hit. Our old friendly Shub was having birthday cake with McCain while people were drowning during Katrina. And people still had to wait years for any assistance if they got any at all. Fear not the private companies can handle it all. They'll just post armed guards at all the exit roads and shoot anybody who tries to leave.
No, that finger in the photo is pointed in the wrong direction. Should be directed at Tampa.
