Fire and flood

Things are just peachy here.

We seem to be dialing it down from 11, natural-disaster-wise.

The Florida branch of Herself’s kin is back home after a stint in Pensacola, and the Adventurous Cyclists in Montana reported a break in the weather over the weekend, so yay, etc. Hope you and yours are on the right side of the lawn, and that said lawn is neither under water nor on fire.

Without cute pix of dogs carrying their own survival rations or video of knuckleheads getting blown off their feet while iPhoning an incoming wave it will be tough to keep our attention from drifting to the next shiny object. The cleanup is never as much fun as the party.

For example:

There are toxins in Houston’s floodwater. The U.S. Virgin Islands are for the moment no longer a paradise for vacationers (or the people who live there). The cleanup in Florida is liable to take the better part of quite some time.

Cooler, damper weather seems to be lending a hand to firefighters in Montana and Oregon, but nobody’s cracking the bubbly just yet.

Equifax doesn’t give a shit about me or thee.

And Ted Cruz apparently “likes” porn. If anything could finally croak the porn industry, this is it.

But hey, cheer up: The new iPhones are here! The new iPhones are here!

    There is so much shiny shit in the news that you can’t keep track of it all. Lots of important stuff gets lost in the noise, like the vast voter fraud in New Hampshire. It’s just the way some people like it.

    Six days to go on the embargo.

      Pat, it’s nuts. Even Mother Times is succumbing to the shit monsoon. Some of the stuff they’ve been dropping into prominent spots on the homepage, it boggles the mind, or what remains of it.

    Go, go Otis !

    Ted Cruz likes porn. He’s probably secretly gay as well. And of course he was against gummint handouts to the victims of SuperStorm Sandy, but now that Texans are the victim of the Chinese Hoax, his hypocrisy’s on full-frontal display.
