An island of normalcy

As Kevin mentioned, I'm working on a few ideas for raising money for hurricane relief. I'll have a few posted tomorrow, but I'm also going to keep up my normal postings.

After 9/11, Art Buchwald wrote a book called "We'll Laugh Again." His point was that we must not diminish the ongoing tragedy, but that someday, somehow, we will return to something resembling normalcy. And Robin Williams came up with the first 9/11 joke that actually made me laugh, too.

But I'm also doing this for my own sanity. I watched about 8 solid hours of hurricane news Sunday and Monday, and it drained me. Knowing that Paul is among the refugees, someong I've blogged alongside for about 18 months, makes it even that much more personal.

I'm going to keep following the coverage, and I'm going to do all I can to help. But I'm also going to keep writing exactly as I have been for the past year and a half. I'll keep up the travels of Mr. Duckie, the exposing of further Mass. Insanity, and in general discussing whatever crosses my mind. Because I need that sanctuary from the horror.

And, maybe, some of you do, too.

Thank you. My heart goes out to Paul and everybody else down there. At the same time, I found myself longing for something not named Katrina while listening to the radio and watching the news. Almost makes me wish Cindy "it is all about my dead son" Sheehan was in the headlines again, so the press could use her daily "screw em" kos article from today to show how completely moonbat crazy that lady is. Oops, I forgot, all they will tell you is she is a grieving mother. But, I digress ...

Thanks Jay Tea, even though I think that one of the kossacks slipped you a roophies to post that blow hole Buchanon article. lol

Paul, my heart and prayers go out to you and yours. We will be thinking of you often.

It is times like this that one feels so incredibly insignificant, like what pittance can one person's actions amount to. The amount of work that needs and will need to be done is so incredibly difficult to just get your mind around.

Sorry for rambling ...

A very good point. However, has normalcy ever been your strong suit? ;-)

Well, here's a bit of "laugh to keep from screaming" humor from Foamy the Squirrel. (Warning, squeeky voice & quick flying obcenities)


Thanks, J. Yes. We need it.... (Below threshold)

Thanks, J. Yes. We need it.
