    from friends and relatives in the Austin surrounds and Hill Country, house after house after house burned to the dirt, emergency evacuations, livestock left behind -- unbelievable.

    Being a good liberal, I feel guilty about the 8.2" of rain TS Lee blessed me with in parched East TN. I feel even guiltier thinking about the fastest solution for TX and OK: a giganto hurricane (which would also help re-oxygenate deep Gulf waters depleted by post-Macondo oil biodegradation).
