I was able to bang out a post yesterday, but I can't promise anything for the rest of the week. I still don't have power at my house and the local electrical company says it could be as long as two weeks before I get it back. Two weeks! And poor Houston has it even worse, with no power, gasoline or running water. While I don't have hot water, the water we get is at least running and won't kill us. So there's that. Let's all think good thoughts for everyone impacted by Hurricane Ike, from Texas to Kentucky and elsewhere. Consider this an open thread.
