The Last War

Today's hurricane season is active, Kwame Kilpatrick is about to plea bargain his way out of office, and the Republican Party's Ship of Ghouls remains at anchor along the Mississippi in the Twin Cities. Labor Day is over and summer's almost gone. But on a jukebox today at lunchtime, I heard two Johnny Cash songs in a row and couldn't help but smile anyway.

Gustav is mostly rain now; Hanna -- presumably not named after Nazi pilot Hanna Reitsch (pictured here) -- may wade ashore in North Carolina on Saturday; Ike (looking as mean as Ike Turner) is turning nastier; and Josephine has yet to become an empress cyclone worthy of Napoleon I.

A fitting season for a crazy election cycle nearing its crescendo ending.

Today's Rune: Growth.

Now's the time to book a cruise for the Bahamas; My guess - the prices are relatively cheap.
