My brother was on I95 in G'ch that night. I was already down here but remember it well. Much traffic in Route 1 (detour) thru town for a long time.
I think I remember the burning truck too. We had of them down here too - did a lot of damage.
I had also driven over the Mianus Bridge a few hours earlier coming home from a Simon & Garfunkel concert in the Meadowlands (those were the days, huh?). The bridge collapsed near dawn during a low traffic time, which saved lives.

I agree. But Seaside is no racist. Neither is Donald Trump. John McCain I cant speak for - except that his embrace of this new birtherism really shows that perhaps we need to provide pastures for anyone in congress more than 40 years.

How goes the storm? So far we have gotten the winds - will probably loose power at some point. Our governor told the cities to implement Cat 4 disaster plans. They are evacuating everything below Post Road in a lot of places, inc Bridgeport.(No worries here - I am well above).
BTW I succumbed to the hype yesterday and bought another pack of AA batteries. So much for a battery shortage - at the podunk supermarket there were about a dozen displays of them - all selling well with more in store. I left thinking the storm was just a conspiracy by Energizer to sell stock.(Now looking outside - I am not so sure about that)
So far so good. I've heard a few limbs fall in the neighbors' yards. Some steady wind and gusts; rain and ponding visible.

I think we're getting the worst of it later tonight and overnight.
I was thinking how convenient it would be to lose power only while we're sleeping!

Sounds like you're doing ok too. Better to have batteries and not need them.

But I think you'e right - the worst is ahead here and probably there too.

My mom's below the post road. My sis lost her power on g'ch/stamford border. But it's back now.

We made Jiffypop before the power goes out! Priorities,

Not so sure about the Donald.

Why single Obama out for all that scrutiny?

Though I know Letterman aplogized, maybe just for ratings/to get Donald back on the show.

They got along well the other night. Letterman even gets along with O'reilly now. I think he's mellowing in his old age,

Having a fun time walking the dog? Mine seems to be taking it in stride. Road down the street from me has been evacuated. It flooded around 11am at high tide. Expected to get worse tonight. I'm on higher ground so safe here as long as no trees fall. Getting a little stir crazy as are the kids....schools closed Mon, Tues and Wed.

Dog knows better than to go on a walk. We lost power briefly twice already (no doubt part of FRs sisters event)- at the rate the wind is blowing I doubt we will last through the evening without loosing it for real. I am watching trees going horizontal. I know about stir crazy - day care closed until further notice. According to "suggested" evac (not the mandatory evac), you should be gone by now, as well as the entire downtown.

,
Its all about the publicity for his brand.

There was an interview released a few days ago of Obama a few hours after Bengahzi, a day before the Rose garden. It was linked on SLATE.COM It was not supposed to be a major interview for release, just a minor local station. Obama admitted that the govt really had no clue what was going on since the situation was still fluid, that they were labeling it an act of terror but that could change as soon as the intelligence came in. Basically all the stuff he stated publically many days afterwords (as others were claiming his story wasnt consistent).

And yet birtherism redux continues, unabated.

Willful ignorance of any fact contrary to the position.

McCain even admitted that for him, it was about the politics.

I do not support welfare, and there is much debate about what "promoting the general welfare " means.
I have a hard time believing that the founders intended on handing out their money to others.

Your evidence that I receive such things ?

Police are supposed to protect individual rights, that would be in alignment with the purpose of government.

Just lost power. Tree down on power line five houses down from me. I don't anticipate restoration for at least a couple days.

Franklin wrote a whole essay on the subject and told one of his
friends:I have long been of your opinion, that your legal
provision for the poor (in England ) is a very great evil, operating
as it does to the encouragement of idleness. We have followed
your example, and begin now to see our error, and, I hope, shall
reform it.
A survey of Franklin s views on counterproductive compassion
might be summarized as follows:
1. Compassion which gives a drunk the means to increase his
drunkenness is counterproductive.
2. Compassion which breeds debilitating dependency and weakness
is counterproductive.
3. Compassion which blunts the desire or necessity to work for a
living is counterproductive.
4. Compassion which smothers the instinct to strive and excel is
counterproductive.
