Too bad this has nothing to do with the hurricane:

Crhsi Rose hits it on the head again

everyone knows the equation by now: A lot of us have (foolishly?) decided we're willing to put up with shoddy services, political inertia, debris, crappy streets and the threat of future hurricanes because this is our home and we love it here -- really, really love it here, shambles and all.


What is the world coming to???

First, Galatoire's opens a restaurant in Baton Rouge. BATON ROUGE!!! The anti-New Orleans. Surely a sign of the apocalypse. Then, I get this from yesterday's newspaper?
Commander's Palace, which is scheduled to reopen in August, is diversifying
geographically by launching a new restaurant in Corpus Christi, Texas (story here)

Oh, the horror....


Much ado about Alberto

So the first tropical depression and tropical storm of the season popped up this year, the disorganized Alberto. It's going to likely make landfall in Florida tomorrow afternoon sometime, dropping a bunch of much-needed rain and marking the opening salvo of Hurricane Season this year.

In honor of this, I've added my favorite hurricane tracking links on the left side of the page. Particularly check out Crown Weather, they have more tropical information than you can shake a stick at. Try it. I've tried a few different sticks, and they just won't shake at it. It's unbelieveable, I always thought that was a cliche'.

For more on Alberto, check out Crown Weather or for a more narrative assessment, this article at the Washington Post.


PNAC no more?

Apparently, the Project for the New American Century is considering closing its doors. PNAC was always facinating to me, especially since its manifestos that are posted on its website foretold many of the events such as 9/11, and the invasion of Iraq. Now, I'm not a big believer in conspiracy theories, but there is a compelling story behind such heavy hitters as Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz signing their names to a strategy report that ends up acting as almost a blueprint for post 9/11 policy.

Check out the PNAC website here, and the Washington Post article about its possible end here
