I’m very nervous about Gustav. Three years ago, I met Katrina victims, George and Martha in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, where I am from. Some of my old blog posts – discussions with George and Martha – are featured in a book, Diary From The Dome.
Ray Nagin has ordered everyone to leave. Thanks to George Bush, New Orleans is not prepared for this one either. Not even close.
Republicans don’t even remotely deserve to win in November, but if their response to this hurricane is even remotely like what happened during Katrina, then I would hope even the most die-hard Republicans would give a big “fuck you” to their party.
I am up at 3:55am watching the track of this storm. I am nervous. I am hoping against hope that the storm just dissipates. It won’t, of course.
