Irony overload

The EU is building a fence/wall to keep out Russian and other illegal immigrants. They’re even taking bids from Israeli companies.

    Cox & Forkum pay tribute to Fay Wray. (Trivia: in the 60s, Walter Koenig was known as “the male Fay Wray” for his screaming ability).

    Allah’s got the lowdown on Islamic participation in the Olympics, plus kooky theories of Islamazoids (warning: second link contains a NSFW picture of what appears to be a bad Marilyn Manson impersonator).

  • Ahh, appeasement

    B.C. discovers that lots of folks of Spanish descent are into appeasement. Fascinating.

    Yeah, this is a second post. I can’t help it. Even the media’s starting to admit that Kerry’s hoist by his own petard.

    Plus, Mark Steyn on Kerry’s ‘unique truth’.

  • Ok, just one link

    The DUers and Kos think Karl Rove caused the hurricane for some sort of partisan advantage. That’s just about the living end.

  • Back in the saddle

    Power finally came back on at 4:45 or so. Living in Florida with no air conditioning for extended periods sucks more than I care to talk about. Regular posting will resume tomorrow.

    Just lost power. I’ll post this then shut down the UPSes. See ya on the flip side.

    Winds are getting even more interesting. The TV guys have a new cliche: going to the feed from traffic cameras. They’re mounted on light poles, so high winds make them shake drunkenly. So you have pretty much the world’s most useless footage, but they sure do like it.

    It’s at Kissimmee/St. Cloud (aka Disney/Sea World/Universal) now. I’m expecting to lose power pretty much any time now, but we’ll see.

    The wind’s kicking up a lot now. Probably less than an hour ’til the eye comes by.

  • Update

    Rain’s still fairly minor, but Charley is getting up near the southern border of Orange County (which contains Orlando and me, among other things). The next 2-3 hours will be the real fun.

  • And right on schedule

    The rain’s down to a light drizzle again.

    UPDATE: Yeah, I know, this is scintillating stuff.

    “Hurricane blog” for a bit, that is. Very heavy rain here at the moment – teevee indicates it’s just a small band and should be gone again soon.

  • Oh, good

    The new revised track puts the thing right on my head around 10 PM. That’s so lovely I have no words for it.

    Incidentally, if there was a hurricane but there was no footage of hapless TV reporters getting blown around like leaves, would it be real?

    Kerry says he would not retaliate if the US were nuked. That’s pleasant.

    Allah has an illustration.

  • Charley

    …now has “jogged” east and will hit Orlando pretty much head-on. Posting may be intermittant as a result. I’m buckled down and stocked up, and I hope other Central Florida folks like B.C. and Frank J. are too.
