    Lots of great stuff. Don’t miss the Michelle Malkin thing about Delta, in particular.

    You may have thought it was over, but check out Dave Barry’s, which includes the following actual quote:

    ME: Is this the way to the naked women protesters?

    FIRST POLICE OFFICER: I hope so.

    SECOND POLICE OFFICER: We’ll follow you.

  • Bring. It. On.

    MoveOn’s getting hit right where they live by the new MoveOnForAmerica, which will soon start airing devestating new anti-Kerry ads.

    On that subject, the “original” Moveon.org was running a bunch of crappy anti-Bush ads during hurricane coverage here. Very irritating. (My battery powered radio can tune AM, FM, and TV, which is quite useful during extended power outages).

    It turns out that not only do terminally smug Northeastern lefties like disasters, they blame them all on the Bushitler™.

  • Back on, I think

    Power came on about 1:10, died, came back on, and then died for an hour. Now it’s been back for about 10 minutes so I think it’s OK. Like with Charley, the cable was already working when I got power back, so kudos to Bright House Networks/Road Runner. As noted by Zg, no interesting damage was sustained – one small tree in my front yard ended up severely crooked so my yard guy threw it into a chipper, and a section of my wooden back fence fell over, but things are OK otherwise.

    PS: With the off-by-one-letter-from-being-tastefully-named “Ivan” coming, anyone know where I can FedEx a generator? I’m serious.

  • Warner Bros. Rejects Documentary

    Warner Brothers rejected a documentary on war that was to be included with the dvd release of the Gulf War movie ‘Three Kings’ . The studio expected it to be a followup on the lives of the Iraqi extras and advisers who helped make the film, not a ‘…polemic about war.’ The director is quoted as saying that even though his Iraqi friends and human rights activists say that the world is better off without Saddam, he is not sure that the world is better off having had the war. Logic apparently eludes this man. Not surprisingly he plans to release the “documentary” right before the election and hopes to do so with help from moro– er moveon.org.

  • Move this

    The 11 PM advisory from NWS is capital-B Bad: the thing is going to take 12 hours to move inland about 30-40 miles, and then accelerate a bit (but not enough for my tastes). On the plus side that means the current non-horrible weather up here on the north edge of the hurricane is going to remain as-is until at least 8-9 AM tomorrow morning. On the minus side that means it’s gonna take even longer to get rid of this thing. It also means damage where it’s making landfall is going to be off the scale and break all previous records.

  • Power just flickered briefly, but it seems to be OK for the moment. Still very little rain/wind here (I’m on the extreme east side of Apopka. Orange County is kind of a stylized L-shape, I’m in the part sticking straight up at the eastern edge, near the top). I hate this overnight thing – it’s going to be nearly impossible to sleep because they expect it to be worst between like midnight tonight and 3 PM tomorrow (falling off hopefully after that).

    UPDATE (10:14 PM): the center’s finally making landfall down in Stuart/Vero Beach/West Palm.
