Well, so far, the stupid freak out over Isaac isn't quite as stupid as it was a few years ago for Gustav when Ray Nagin got on TV with a stage over-crammed with city officials and claimed that the storm was bigger than the actual size of the Gulf.
Everybody up and ran for no reason only to find that they weren't allowed back in without the proper city issued placard. It was expensive. It was inconvenient. It was unnecessary. Probably it was unconstitutional as well.
None of that has happened yet with this storm which is probably a sign that we've grown a little since then. Anyway we're off to the grocery for "hurricane supplies" which roughly translates as... you know... groceries.
Wake me up when Serpas comes on TV to announce he's adding sobriety checkpoints to all contraflow points of egress.
