I think I've heard this song before. "Paul who?"

Initially, according to Nixon administration spokesmen, the Watergate break-in was "just a third rate burglary. Nothing to do with the administration."
Then slowly...slowly...the layers of the onion were peeled back.
You know the rest.

Is Papadapoulas Donnie Two-Scoops' 'Deep Throat'?
We'll see.

Voting is like driving.

If you want to go backward, choose "R".
If you want to go forward, choose "D".

Gene Kelly dances on roller skates.

Just absolutely INCREDIBLE balance.
From "It's Always Fair Weather".

L'il Donnie jokes:

Li'l Donnie goes into a store and sees a shiny object.
He asks the clerk, "What is that shiny object?"
The clerk replies, "That is a thermos flask."
Li'l Donnie then asks, "What does it do?"
The clerk responds, "It keeps hot things hot and it keeps cold things cold."
Li'l Donnie says, "I'll take it!"
The next day, he walks into work with his new thermos.
His boss sees him and asks, "Whacha' got there?"
He said, "It's a thermos flask. It keeps hot things hot and cold things cold."
The boss said, "Wow, what do you have in it?"
The moron replies, "Two cups of coffee and a coke."

OK, here's how post disaster debris cleanup works.

This is based on my experience working for a contractor after Hurricane Ivan in 2004. I assume not much has changed with FEMA.

1. Homeowner is responsible for get debris to streetside.

2. Debris should be separated.
A, Cut up downed tees and any other ORGANIC material in one pile. This will be ground into 'mulch' or whatever.
B. Construction materials in another pile. Carpet, drywall, flooring, etc. Possibly also furniture, mattresses, etc. but check with local authorities.
C. "White goods." All appliances.
D. "Hazmat" Toxic stuff. Chemicals, paint, solvents, etc. Check with local authorities.

3. Depending on how much money is in FEMA's budget, and how many sub-contractors the main contractor can/will hire, it may be quite a while before your street is cleared.

Remember that the main contractor (they bid on the contract to FEMA) and ALL his subs are there to make a profit. This is their job. It's how they make a living.

Good luck.

He threw out paper towels. Seriously. Like Mardi Gras beads.

"Hey, Spics! Show us your tits! Here's some free government paper towels!
Scramble for 'em!
Clean yourself up."

My daughter leaves for Las Vegas tomorrow.

It's a business convention.
I'm damn glad she wasn't there two days ago, but Las Vegas is probably the safest city in the U.S. right now.

She has been told that corporate and hotel 'security' has been doubled, whatever that means.
