I don’t want to go overboard here, writing before the fact, but as of this posting I think Gustav will be remembered as a normal “bad hurricane.” Of course, many people will have their lives turned upside down by a bad hurricane, but I mean this storm will resemble not Katrina but all those in history that came before. I know the people of Cajun Country will tie a knot and hang on. They’re tough.
We should be able to get through the Mary Lou saga this week, both in the newspaper and online. Oops! I’m not supposed to tell you what’s going to happen in the newspaper.
