taste the irony

By all accounts, it would seem that significant portions of at least four southern states are going to be catastrophically affected by the hurricane and associated events in the Gulf Coast over the last couple of days. Several million people will be living in devastated cities, surrounded by rubble, rotting human and animal remains, with no electricity, no water, no fresh food, no telephone service, and limited ability to travel due to having cars either damaged beyond repair or that won't run for their owners being unable to find gasoline within any feasible distance.

In other words, a lot of Americans are going to find out what the life of the average Iraqi is like today.

Minus, of course, the car bombs.

Remember, freedom is messy!
