Also...perhaps a little off-topic, but has anybody noticed the state of FL might be looking for a new met?
I'm referring to the first FL press conference from a couple of days ago. The state met still has that 12-going-on-20 hey-I-can-do-the-job-Dad look. Did anyone notice how Bush rolled his eyes, on camera, when the guy started his speech and nervously said "Katrina" instead of "Wilma?" Perhaps this fellow is some nephew they had to hire. Anyway I noticed he was absent from following press conferences, where Bush read all the warning material himself.
Also...since you can count the minutes I've watched G. Bush on TV in the past 10 years on the fingers of one hand, this was the first time I'd even seen Gov. Bush. He seemed like more of a workhorse type rather than a dilettante. I was impressed with the way he read the briefing first in English, then in Spanish, and also had a signer as well, and was precise, prepared, thorough, and sensible. Not only that, it is apparent that FL really does have their act tog as far as hurricane prep, more than any other state. Yikes, he seemed almost...cool.
