Forecast is still right in line. Enjoy the weather. The little upper low on Thursday night still may bring a late shower or two and clouds early Friday. Shouldn’t be a big deal. Friday still looks warm and breezy. Front Friday night is looking rather pedestrian and should be out of the area for most Saturday events. If the front gets pokey though…there may still be some showers early Saturday but we aren’t playing that game. In short, the forecast is in line.
On This Date In History: On this date 1949 Alfred Hitchcock would not have been proud. Illinois Gov. Adlai Stevenson was not for the birds. Passed by the Illinois legislature was a bill that would protect birds from cats. It sat on his desk until he vetoed it. In referencing his denial of legal cover for our feathered friends, he said “We may be called upon to take sides as well in the age old problems of dogs versus cats…even bird versus worm. [We] already have enough to do without trying to contol feline delinquency.” No word on weather or not Tweety Bird made an appeal.
Now…we all know that Louisiana has had some trouble following Katrina. Of course, Mississippi was the one that really got hit by the hurricane and suffered great devastation. You don’t hear as much about Mississippi and its continuing rebound. Perhaps this little gem may give you some reason to figure out why….and it’s similar to the story concerning Mr. Stevenson. While there are still many problems and issues to deal with in Louisiana on a yearly basis, the efforts to deal with reconstruction of damaged areas and institute changes to make sure that mistakes of the past will not be repeated one would think would be the primary focus of the lawmakers. Alas, the Louisiana legislature has some how found it worthwhile, necessary and important to deal with the issue found on the link below.
Please note that the tv station that posted it on the web found it to be of newsworthy importance and makes me wonder why we don’t cover such hard-hitting stories that can only shine one type of light on journalism as a whole.
On more important matters, on this date 3 years ago, Snow White and I tied the knot. It was the best thing I’ve done although I’ve had to fight off the army of psychiatrists who are eager to examine her. I’ve been accused of extortion or perhaps holding her family hostage or some such skullduggery as many find it hard to comprehend how Snow White could opt for Dopey…who sometimes morphs into Grumpy. I definitely married up and my reputation has been well enhanced. I shudder to think of what has become of hers.
