BBC reporter Matt Wells on the situation in New Orleans

And personally, I think he pretty much sums it up here:

The uneasy paradox which so many live with in this country - of being first-and-foremost rugged individuals, out to plunder what they can and paying as little tax as they can get away with, while at the same time believing that America is a robust, model society - has reached a crisis point this week.

But then, I'm such a leftie-bolshie Blue State Liberal.

So if you think the poverty-stricken/elderly/diabetic people in New Orleans should have gotten off their lazy butts and hired, you know, like a limo or something to take them far away from Katrina, don't click here.

    P.S. Relax. I won't waste your blog's bandwidth exhaustively detailing how and why this cretin got it all wrong. I'll waste mine's.

    p.s. In fact, they're probably better informed. For example, I'll bet some of your girlfriends can identify the two guys pictured in my "Modern Cool Nerd" entry. But I can't.

    It shows what a raving geek I am I did this entirely for your benefit.

    P.P.S. Please advise if any of my e-harem can correctly identify the people in the photo, that I may replace them instantly.

    P.P.P.S. Your comment thingy is not working right. It only shows two as posted when, in fact, there are more. Maybe it's just a weird glitch, but there you are.

  7. Just as I always suspected. Republicans can't count.

  8. You've been under the influence of Mayor Daley too long, you're starting to count things that aren't there any more.
