Rita and JetBlue

Media hangover. At work, we'd check and gesticulate: "Rita's come to category 2!" .. Later in the day.. "Category 4!" "No, serious, finish!".. Before sign out at 5pm... "Category FIVE" * a hand with all fingers and the thumb splayed out*. "WOW! Hope Hurricane pick up Crawford Ranch, drop and smash!"

From what I've been able to garner from the exhausting array of media coverage - seems the evacuation plans are in place and yellow buses in poor neighborhood. Least the government has some ability to learn from mistakes. It always happens when you're sitting on your ass and you get a nasty bump on your head when some high winds and flooding flips you over head and ass. I love how Doonesbury portray Bush II with his Roman Comb (that thing red fan whatisit) in tatters..

Watching "Lost" and during commercial, the local ABC affiliate cuts in and say 'special report' (no captioning, naturally).. a clip of a plane banking (or flying in a big circle) making for an emergency landing. Oy vey. It's irritating.. I half expected to see it crash and go up in a big ball of flame.. Ah here it is.. Another special report just ran with a footage: the Jetblue plane cruising along on the runaway.. Whew..
