Three things concerning Katrina

Number One: It goes without saying but I'll say it anyway. First and foremost, our hearts go out to those folks in Louisiana and Mississippi. Mrs. Mosley is grateful that all of her family is in the northern part of Mississippi, but both of us are thinking of you folks in the south. Take care and be careful.

Number Two: OK, we live in an age of satellite tracking and computer imaging and whatnot. I think that reporters can stop going to places like New Orleans to report about the storm. We know it's there and we know it's bad. We don't need you risking life and limb because of it. So please, Carl Quintanilla, get the hell out of there!

Number Three: George W. Bush during the 2000 presidential debates -

"What I think the president ought to do is he ought to get on the phone with the OPEC cartel and say we expect you to open your spigots. One reason why the price is so high is because the price of crude oil has been driven up. OPEC has gotten its supply act together, and it's driving the price, like it did in the past. And the president of the United States must jawbone OPEC members to lower the price."
Gas Price statistics for August -

08/01/05 - $2.291
08/08/05 - $2.368
08/15/05 - $2.550
08/22/05 - $2.612
The EIA doesn't have information for today yet, but most likely it will be much higher due to Katrina. I think it's time Dubya stop taking hand-holding walks with the leader of Saudi Arabia and start applying pressure, or "jawbone" if you prefer, for more oil output. Otherwise, we'll be seeing $3.00 a gallon gas before Christmas. Enough is enough, George.
