Listening to end-of-world reports on impact of avian flu is enough to crash the market.We need good news like Abbott discovering Avian Flu antidote.Let alone million Katrina refugees living forever in Holiday Inns with FEMA paying the bill.Bush needs to defer Medicare Prescription Drugs but he will not.At least he could reopen that Transportation Bill with $50 Bil pork.Meanwhile Fed Govt & Congress get 3.44% raise and I get my COLA.Stuck in Iraq forever can't leave or we got terrorism choking US interests around the world and then we strangle economically.Good time to have a martini on rocks with twist.Check 6
Katrina was a C-3 and the levees were supposed to withstand C-3 force hurricanes. The US Army Corps of DOLT Engineers goofed big time, who could we trust to build a wall on the Southern border? Haliburton?
To me the fact that it is the same or a similar avian virus is of little importance. The outcome is what counts, and I'm not sure that is is established beyond a reasonable doubt that they are not one and the same, only in the pigeon's mind fer sherr!

What if it's revealed she is a closet lesbian. We would have a damn revolution! Baptist would take to the streets. It just goes to show what an Ivy League/up east education will do to a good Texan. Am I wrong?
