Actually, Ray, there is no God

Because if there was, surely He in His beneficence would have stuffed a sock in your mouth by now:
"The hurricane, Nagin said, was an 'unimaginable event,' one he implied may have been designated by God. Before Katrina, Nagin said, New Orleans was a city of 'haves and have nots,' with one of the highest rates of poverty, one of the worst public school systems in the nation and a high percentage of young males involved in crime. 'Then, you know, God looked down on that and said, `You know, I need to change that',' Nagin said. 'And then Katrina happened. And in the midst of all that devastation, God is now allowing us to have an opportunity to reset the table, and that was what the election was all about.'"

I can't believe he said that.

Well I guess I can. Oy

God, save me from your followers.

This after Blanco's God statement to NPR. On being asked how she prepares for the future of Louisiana, especially with the upcoming hurricane season, "I pray a lot."


Ask for a brain while you're at it.

That was MawMaw's advice last time - "we need to pray the storm away." Prayin' didn't work. Should we try pickin' and grinin', or just go straight to human sacrifice?
