Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's nothing new, though.  People have been doing hurricane parties in stupid places forever.

Usually it's people who don't quite understand what's coming at them.  Yuppies from the Midwest and the West who are too stupid to look at the television screen and think, "That big storm.  Big storm eat Krog.  Krog leave now."

One would've hoped Katrina had solved that problem, but, no, they'll simply think the death and destruction of Katrina was the result of NOLA being below sea level and all those Negroes refusing to go to their "summer homes" on higher ground.

The people in the bars in Galveston are probably dead.  They didn't have to be.  And any who survived after staying voluntarily -- as opposed to not having the ability, physical or financial, to leave -- have put the emergency personnel at risk needlessly and should be thrown in jail, quite honestly.

But, yes, the psychotic news is probably damaging, too.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
