The Washington Post has a terrifying story about the dire consequences of a major hurricane hitting New Orleans dead on. That, of course, very well may happen less than 24 hours from now. I’m from just down the road from New Orleans myself, and so I’ve watched hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico for most of my life. I also consider New Orleans to be something of a spiritual home, so those folks are much on my mind today. I hope we don’t wake up tomorrow morning to find the city washed away.
