If you love hurricanes this has been quite the season. Then again, if you really love hurricanes you've got to be kind of sick.
Rita is Category 4, probably will become Category 5 and is headed right into the coast of Texas. It's expected to possibly flatten Corpus Christi and Galveston by Friday and even hit Houston and make a mess of the place. All those poor folks from New Orleans who are now living in Houston, thinking they were going to get their lives back together, are going to have to think of evacuating again. They just cleared out the Astrodome of evacuees and now they're going to probably have to reopen that old ballpark, again, to take on more people. THIS IS SAD.
Where are these displaced Katrina victims to go now? Oklahoma!? They can't go there, that place always gets smashed by tornadoes. And they can't go to California because of earthquakes, and they can't go to New York because of terrorist attacks. There is nowhere to go. Life is sad in the United States, land of football and country music, and Britney Spears, and Jessica Simpson, and plenty of bad weather. No wonder people in the USA are so religious, given all the disasters they have to put up with. They're in church all the time praying for miracles down there. What a miserable decade it has been for people living in the United States of America.
Anyway here's the coverage from Houston and I expect the people there to truly freak out and hit the roads in no time, after seeing what went down with Katrina when people didn't leave town. Everyone needs to get out of town, fast.
