I wish Nikki Haley was in charge of FEMA.

No, don't send anybody to check on me.
The only thing she did as governor that was handled well was preparing for Matthew and guiding people through the aftermath. No, she wasn't perfect but it was one of the better efforts I have seen.

She held periodic updates and didn't spend the time doing all the talking. She had the appropriate officials with her who gave reports. She actually listened to people.

She also stuck to her guns about evacuation and not cancelling it.
While at the UN, she has shown a propensity to leave the reservation. She will also tell people to go to hell or just do it her way. That might have come in handy.

Well, the head of FEMA seems competent.

At least he has worked in management of hurricane crises.
It could be Ben Carson and his 'state of mind'.

Hazel and Hugo.

I lived through both of them.
Harvey will be a million times worse.
I know even I am not comprehending its magnitude.
I cried when I saw the map. Not much else to do.
Sending what I can.

What is it with the "H's"?

US diplomats were also injured in sonic attacks in Cuba

American diplomats in Cuba have been diagnosed with mild traumatic brain injury and central nervous damage after an apparent attack with a sonic weapon targeted their homes, per a review of medical records by CBS News.

The State Department hasn't explicitly identified the source of the attack or what person or entity might have carried it out. The Cuban government has denied any involvement with the incident.

Why it matters: The severity of the apparent injuries goes far beyond what was originally reported, so it stands to reason that President Trump's administration might choose to respond strongly given his prior rhetoric on Cuba, especially given that the report notes that the attacks on Americans are continuing.

The Turtle is going to get Trump.

In some sneaky way, he will zap him. I can't stand McConnell but he is not Trump's employee.
He is also ruthless and he will get even.

I hope they destroy each other.
