Hurricane Ike

Thank goodness it appears Hurricane Ike turned out not to be the catastrophic event everyone was predicting (per the BBC on Saturday afternoon).  Bush was quick, however, to declare Texas a federal disaster zone. 

But the poor people of Haiti did not fare nearly as well.  The BBC is reporting nearly 1 million Haitians have been left homeless by the 4 storms that have hit Haiti in the last 3 weeks.  Haiti’s prime minister, Michele Pierre-Louis, is asking the international community for aid.

On a lighter note, here’s Geraldo Rivera, of Fox News, getting a bit too close to the action.
