    Just a line to say good luck to any Arrsers based in Louisiana (and my cousins in Florida)- let's hope Mayor Nagin putting the fear of God into his citizens in the Big Easy will turn out to be OTT.

  2. Gustav is probably one of the best things to happen to the GOP in recent times.

    Dubya and Cheney have cancelled their appearences at the GOP convention. And so has Schwarzenegger.

    Good for McCain who at the moment does not want to be seen within a 100 miles of these bozos.

    Good luck to the folks down there. This certainly looks like the big one. Katrina was a CAT 3 when it hit. Projections are this will be a a CAT 4 or even a CAT 5.

    Gustav? Sounds like a Russian operation to me.

    Former Royal Engineer Alan Pond said:

    “I’ve got my barbeque, a 12-gauge shotgun, an automatic pistol, gallons of water, we’ve boarded everything up, we’ve fed the animals, we’ve got everything we need – we’re ready,” he told the Times Online.

    “This house has been here since the 1880s, it’s going to be fine.”

    Have to admire the skill with which the mayor managed to get reelected after cocking it up last time, and the skill with which he and the State Governor (who had primary responsibility) managed to shift all the blame onto the federal govt. I recall, for instance, the pics of all those school buses up to their engines in flood water that could have been used to shift the car-less to safety. However Nagin seems to have sharpened up this time.
