The Flood that Wasn't

Chad has an inside look (with photos!) at the event staged by the Governor's PAC to pressure the House into raising taxes.

The flood waters did not rise. There was barely a trickle.

Hell, even the anti-tax rally back in the bad weather earlier this year drew more folks...and derisive newspaper coverage. Why hasn't this flop earned the same press ink? Two guess...and the first one doesn't count.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
