Democrat from Kentucky
We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

A Great Photo And A Forlorn Future For Louisiana: Rita's Coming Thursday, September 22, 2005

Hurricane Rita is full of power and destruction and will wreak havoc on the Gulf Coast, much a Katrina did. It looks to be a full swath from Alabama all the way to Texas with a complete line of devastation. Louisiana continues to pray something will remain of their city.

In a recent AP story, they quoted Governor Blanco:

"Rita has Louisiana in her sights," Governor Blanco said. "Head north. You cannot go east, you cannot go west. If you know the local roads that go north, take those."

As for those who refuse to leave, she said: "Perhaps they should write their Social Security numbers on their arms with indelible ink"

This is one Hell of a way to end the summer. Here in Kentucky we can't get rain and the Gulf Coast can't get away from it.
