Fretting about Gustav

Three years ago, our eldest son, Andy, and his grandparents were driven out of their Slidell, LA home by Katrina. Their house was pretty much completely destroyed.

They had JUST finished rebuilding their home in May, when Bill Gray, the kids' grandpa, died.

Now Myrna and Andy are facing another category four hurricane, and if it destroys their home this time, I don't know what they will do.

Their house backs right on to a canal. A wave went through their house last time that was literally twenty feet high.

*nail biting*

McCain should learn when not to talk.

"I think Sen. Obama, if they want to do down that route, in all candor, she has far, far more experience than Sen. Obama does," McCain said.

He cited Palin's stint as governor of a "state that produces 20 percent of America's energy" as well as her previous membership in the PTA and her time spent on the city council and in the mayor's office in Wasilla,a town of fewer than 7,000 people outside Anchorage.

Did he actually cite time on the PTA as being good prep for the nation's HIGHEST OFFICE?

Say it ain't so, Joe. just in case this is too hard for you to believe so you HAVE to think I made it up.

I honestly wish I had. And I'm dead-set against McCain. But this is just... sad.

Children singing

My kids don't sing the latest crappy pop music.

They sing the entire RENT soundtrack.

They're out in the living room singing La Vie Boheme.
