Katrina And The Waves

It looks like we've got another one of these hurricanes coming through (though it seems like the four from last year only just left), and it's shaping up to be a direct hit on my area.

Fortunately, Katrina is only projected to be a category one hurricane at landfall, meaning sustained winds near the eye will probably be in the 70's, dropping to the 40's some miles out from the eye. The bigger issue for us will likely be rain. We're expecting possibly more than a foot of it in a 24 hour period, and even in wet South Florida, that kind of deluge can cause some problems.

So I could be out of commission a few days. In the meantime, here's some reading worth pursuing:

My friend Jack Brooks, who is a pastor, has some excellent, reasoned thoughts on the Robertson/Chavez issue.

America's premier Spurgeonophile, Phil Johnson, posts a substantial account of the early life and conversion of the prince of preachers, Charles Haddon Spurgeon. Kinda makes my throw-stuff-at-Rita-Cosby post seem a little shallow, I guess. (P.S. Phil, if your Blogspotting happens to bring you by here as a result of this link, please permit me the opportunity to gratuitously mention that the Cardinals currently lead the Cubs by 19 games.)

And Thomas Sowell points out that the world is not running out of oil, a point borne out by the fact that my highway commute is still just as crowded as ever. Sowell also explains why the government should keep it's big, fat nose out of the price of gas.
