2 Scenarios, Both Bad.

I've been watching lots of the Weather Channel lately, and it's been almost as scary as hearing evangelicals rave about Sarah Palin. This morning a couple of interesting things:

One of the channel's Weather forecasters discussed two key different scenarios for Hurricane Ike: 1) a low pressure system moves quickly thru the US, and Ike goes northerly, from Corpus Christi to north of Houston. 2) the system doesn't have that effect and it goes from northern Mexico to north of Corpus Christi. Now, this was alarming for a couple of reasons: 1) Corpus Christi is included in both scenarios 2) the second scenario, which has the effect of destroying Corpus Christi, more or less, was basically lauded as more favorable than if it were to hit Houston. Ouch. So that's what it feels like when we talk about how it would be better if it would just go into Mexico rather than the US...
