A torch in the Gulf.
In old Europe, torches were lit to tell knights and soldiers that their king needed them for some great campaign. These soldiers promptly left their homes to do their bid for king and country.
Gustav's presence in the gulf is bringing back all sorts of memories of Katrina 3 years ago, and I know I'm not the only one. But those memories extend only to the storm itself. The preparations bear no resemblance to the responses three years ago. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal spoke to Fox news yesterday, and he seemed very much on top of this potential tragedy.
For Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas wings in particular, please stay safe. If needed, give me a call. But hopefully this results in nothing more than a damage assessment mission.
