My thoughts and prayers are with those affected by Hurricane Katrina. It is truly amazing how even in the most developed country in the world, people's engineering prowess doesn't compare to nature's fury. Talking of which, does anyone else feel there are too many damn natural calamities off late. I mean, I'm starting to wonder where global warming fits into all of this!
Katrina also exposed what a screwed-up energy system we have. For all those who thought conservation was a dirty word, $5 gas and talk of rationing should help convince them what dire warnings of global warming couldn't. I was shocked to read that major airports might run out of jet fuel by next week!
