One Good Thing
One major category four storm is enough. Two is going to be devestating, both the people whose lives will be effected in Texas, as well as for the American taxpayer that is going to have to pay the bill to fund another necessary emergency aid package. Hopefully, the members of the Republican Study Committee (led by Congressman Mike Pence from Indiana) will be successful in their efforts to convince their colleagues that the best way to fund the Katrina Aid Package (and the forthcoming Rita Aid Package) is to cut earmarks and pork from the Federal Budget instead of increasing the debt or raising taxes. Even Tom DeLay has seen that light on the issue, despite his odd statement of last week.
Once again, send your prayers to the Gulf Coast; they are going to need them.
