Hurricane in Arkansas? Wait, what?

Posted By on Mon, Sep 15, 2008 at 1:18 PM

Global Warming Exists.  Period.

Unless you are a complete psychotic-nutcase homeschooling you children to believe that God intended the polar bear to die and it's the Lord's divine will to melt the ice caps, you have got to start paying attention to global warming.  Why? Hurricanes in Arkansas.

When the hell did we have to start worrying about hurricanes in Arkansas?  I don't remember when I was  a kid it raining three straight days because of a "tropical depression" coming through?  What the F?  And this past weekend, what the hell was that?  Suddenly we're on the dirty side of the storm?  What?  There's no beaches here?  Wait, this isn't fair.

I mean if we're going to have the ill effects of hurricanes, I want the perks, I want an ocean, I want a beach, I want sunny, 80 degree days with decent humidity.  It's not fair to be landlocked and have to deal with ice storms and have to deal with stupid remnants of hurricanes that knock down trees, flood everything and take out power for three days.  Screw that noise.  So start thinking green people, because global warming is coming fo yas.

And furthermore, why, oh why are we talking about drilling for more and more oil to refine in more and more refineries that are shutdown or destroyed by more and more storms?  Maybe we should think about finding a renewable energy source that won't shoot up in price everytime there's hurricane in the Gulf or the Mid-East decides to squeeze us... hmmm, where's that platform Obamma?

  • Alltel Arena?

    So now that Verizon has become the Godzilla of American Cellphonery, what's going to happen to Alltel Arena?  Will Verizon keep the sponsorship tie-in, will someone else step up and buy it or will it retain the Alltel name (which I'm sure it can't after the deal is up as the name is now property of Verizon, right?)

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
