So This Ain't Nothin' ?

Washington Post Coverage (And Videos)

It didn't matter what anyone wore, or ate, or said, or did. It didn't differentiate on the basis of religion, or income, or social circle, or political stance. It didn't matter what vehicle anybody drove, or the type of house that anybody lived in.

When the tornadoes formed and chose a path...nothing mattered except hunkering down for dear life or getting the hell out of the way.

Between earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, wildfires, baseball-sized hail and tornadoes...Mother Nature is kicking our ass this year and I don't think that she's done, yet!

Big talk from small people like Charlie Sheen...fades in the roar of Mother Nature's fury. Shoot, even "The Donald" would be totally helpless, if he was caught on the side of a highway and in the path of an EF-4 tornado.

I could just see him, standing in the grass, shaking his fist at the swirling, oncoming juggernaut and shouting, "You turn around! I order it! I am rich and powerful and you're fired!"

Then, twenty-seconds later, old Mr. MoneyBags would suddenly be swept-up and air-mailed through the roof of somebody's house.

We are all just fluff balls when it comes right down to it. Mother Nature holds the karma. Not us.

This year, she is doing one horrible job of making that point clear.

I saw that story about the baby earlier today. I wonder if he will ever know how lucky he is!

With all of the media attention that the story got, I'm sure he will. And I bet that baby is going to be a very special person in the world, someday.
