It's a sad thing when one can Google the words, "pastor" and "martial law," and come up with results. It's still only the one news story amid plenty of blogs, but disturbing nonetheless. (Not sure what I'm talking about? Check yesterday's entry.)

As Hurricane Dean heads into the Gulf of Mexico and approaches Category 5 status, it raises the question:
What's different now as opposed to 2005, when Hurricane Katrina hit?

It's still a Category 5 hurricane heading for landfall.

We haven't suddenly acquired amazing new technology to better predict and/or map the course of the storm.

Why was this decision so difficult to make in 2005, but so easy in 2007?

So Karl Rove makes the Sunday morning talk shows and waxes poetic about his time and service to our great country.

When asked about Iraq, he chose to quote Napoleon, offering the old adage that no plan ever survives contact with the enemy.

What plan would that be, Karl? The plan that ended with the staged photo op aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln? The 'stick our nuts in the chipper-shredder and tough it out' plan?

And isn't four years time enough to come up with a better plan?
