President Barack Obama has made some thoughtful comments on Hurricane Irene.
Damage from Irene has been massive. Tons of places are flooded. CT is now getting pounded. I know that some people may believe that New York overreacted by shutting down the transportation system. I think that they made the right call, without a doubt.
Local mother is charged with stabbing her daughters to death. Very sad.
Great article on how to fix the terrible political conditions in Afghanistan as we withdraw our troops.
Update: Herman Cain wins a Georgia Straw Poll. Of course, Ga is his home state. In a recent national poll, Cain has only 4% support. I’m not sure if he is done but he is going to have to make a significant move in order to stand out from the crowd. Of course, with Rick Perry entering the race, Herman Cain is going have to think long and hard about something outrageous to say because the Texas governor has said just about everything already.
Medicaid is looked at by insurers as a bonanza. This is the healthcare reform problem in a nutshell.
Investigation into the Wisconsin Supreme Court reveals what we already know, that it is really dysfunctional. It really doesn’t matter who is at fault. The court is not servicing the people of Wisconsin all that well if you have Justices calling each other bitches and choking one another. It is simply wrong.

A Dallas constable is told by an emotional, bleeding mother that her boyfriend has kidnapped her two young boys. The constable does nothing. The boys are later killed by the boyfriend. There are lots of things that I don’t understand in this world. I don’t understand how a mother stabs her children (see the story above). I don’t understand how a Constable does nothing. I don’t understand how you don’t pick up the phone and call the police, at the very least. I don’t understand how as a human being, you do nothing.
