Achtung! You're wrong

Apparently, some ignorant German commentators are trying to blame Hurricane Katrina on . . . what else? President Bush and global warming.

Even the lefties at The New York Times and The LA Times (albeit with a misleading headline)have checked with the scientific experts and are conceding that global warming most likely has nothing to do with it.

I wonder where all the German scientists have gone?

The capable ones went to America.
The unlucky ones went to the USSR.
The evil ones went to South America.

By the way, the German meteorologists in WWII told the Wermacht high command that weather would make a landing impossible on JUne 6, 1944, so maybe the current scientists are only following tradition (if not orders)

A simple demonstration that choices can have unforeseen consequences...

It appears that the money has been moved in the president's budget to handle homeland security and the war in Iraq, and I suppose that's the price we pay. Nobody locally is happy that the levees can't be finished, and we are doing everything we can to make the case that this is a security issue for us.
