Two things I’ve learned post-Katrina: (1) ads for Smokey Robinson’s Soul in the Bowl Gumbo played over the P.A. in Chicago grocery stores aren’t funny like they used to be, and (2) Katrina and the Waves’ “Walking on Sunshine” won’t sound the same on jukeboxes in New Orleans anymore, which is going to make a lot of black people sad.
Why hasn't America declared war on hurricanes yet? C’mon, G.W., we were attacked! Mother Nature may be a woman, but that doesn’t mean you can’t kick her in the nuts with a few long-range missiles. Show those big, swirly masses of air and water who's boss this year.
