We are going to get attacked with 24/7 Hurricane coverage
and Saddam's trial in order to get away from the failing Iraq War, Plamegate and Delaygate. You know that.

But, here's something about the Hurricane that won't be brought up. When I woke up yesterday, it was a Tropical Storm of 65 MPH. When I went to bed, it was a Category 2 Hurricane. Now it's a Category 5 (another one. G-d help us).

Maybe the media should look at the reasons for the Carribean and the Gulf of Mexico are such Hurricane fuelers. I know why. I know why the water is 5 degrees warmer than usual and getting warmer. . .but the media will not dare cover that story or else wingnuts claim "liberal" media.

1. Hurricanes are Karma for the petroleum industry.
Mother Nature says, "You pollute my air I sink your oil rigs!"

2. Apparently Saddam's trial was rescheduled to November.
For maximum impact?

But the hurricane coverage will definitely saturate our screens...for all the wrong reasons, of course.
