EJ came over and encouraged me to waste an hour watching television so there is nothing earthshattering to report. I was switching back and forth between The Weather Channel and CNN watching the coverage of Rita when CNN went to President Bush’s press conference about the War on Terror.

During the Q&A at the end, the subject turned to the differences between Hurricane Rita and Hurricane Katrina. Bush stated that the difference was that the people of Texas know enough to evacuate. Ouch! I think it came off as a little more harsh than he intended as he later changed it to – everyone is taking it more seriously because they learned from Katrina.

In any event, it is back to getting some stuff ready… see you in about an hour.
