Not so Lovely Rita

Pleased were we to hear that Hurricane Rita has yet to officially kill anyone directly, although no doubt the 24 senior citizens who died in the bus on I-45 qualify as indirect deaths.

Yet the damage was not inconsequential. Rita's rain and storm surge cracked the levees in New Orleans again, raising new, tough questions about the advisability of whether the city should be rebuilt quickly "as it was" or if it should be re-engineered. (More on this later.)

Meanwhile, and no disrespect to all those who are getting more rain than they need, but we have seen Zilch. Nada. Nothing. It's muggy and overcast, we need a good frog-choking downpour, and the weather people are now telling us it isn't gonna happen.

This is an Official Frump.
