TURNING ON THE LIGHTS
By Elaine Meinel Supkis
At Atrios today, the posters were talking about the breaking news story that isn't in the news but is on a reporter's blog...hahaha, even the reporters are resorting to blogging to get the real story out...last night, when Bush was announcing the rebuilding of New Orleans using Chinese yuan, everything was brightly lit up.
From MSNBC, Brian Willam's blog:
I am duty-bound to report the talk of the New Orleans warehouse district last night: there was rejoicing (well, there would have been without the curfew, but the few people I saw on the streets were excited) when the power came back on for blocks on end. Kevin Tibbles was positively jubilant on the live update edition of Nightly News that we fed to the West Coast. The mini-mart, long ago cleaned out by looters, was nonetheless bathed in light, including the empty, roped-off gas pumps. The motorcade route through the district was partially lit no more than 30 minutes before POTUS drove through. And yet last night, no more than an hour after the President departed, the lights went out. The entire area was plunged into total darkness again, to audible groans. It's enough to make some of the folks here who witnessed it... jump to certain conclusions.Pardon me while I jump.
Since Bubble Boy travels in a airtight totally protected shell, we should chain him to a lampost in New Orleans until all the lights come back on!
Change his location each day so everyone gets one day of electricity.
Then we move him to Iraq and repeat this only we know, he will not last very long there since they tend to blow up people they don't like.
Just a thought.
