Wow

The media are slowly coming around to the Benghazi story (now that the election campaign is all but over).  And they are not liking what they're seeing.

An example:

Benghazi blunder: Obama unworthy commander-in-chief

The meat of it:
To return to office a narcissistic amateur who seeks to ride this nation's economy and international esteem to oblivion, like Slim Pickens riding the nuclear bomb to its target at the end of the movie "Dr. Strangelove," would be disastrous.

Candidate Obama said if he couldn't fix the economy in four years, his would be a one-term presidency.

Mitt Romney is moral, capable and responsible man. Just this once, it's time to hold Barack Obama to his word. Maybe we can all do something about that, come Tuesday.
Indeed.

On Benghazi, The Most Basic Question Of All:

Why, on 9/11 of all days, was the Obama administration totally unprepared for a terrorist attack in the most volatile region on the planet?

A Note To The Frightened Children ...

... at the Roanoke Times (see "[Hurricane] Sandy has been just the sort of storm climate models forecast and serves as a terrible reminder of global warming's ever-growing threat."), from Matthew Algeo, writing in the New York Times:
On Tuesday, Aug. 22, in the Atlantic Ocean, four hurricanes were swirling simultaneously, an event never before recorded, and one that would not happen again until 1998. Two would peter out, but over Wednesday night, one of the hurricanes slammed into New York City. At least 30 people were killed. A storm surge swept across southern Brooklyn and Queens, destroying virtually everything in its path. Railroad tracks near Brighton Beach were washed away, along with bath houses and sections of boardwalk.

Four days later, on Aug. 27, the last, even more powerful hurricane made landfall near Savannah, Ga., devastating coastal island communities. As many as 2,000 people were killed, many swept out to sea, never to be seen again. Corn and cotton crops were ruined, and wells were contaminated with seawater.
Four powerful hurricanes? 2,000 people killed?  Crops ruined?  Destroying everything?

That's right.

The year?

1893.

The kids at the Roanoke Times look upon the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy several days ago as being something biblical.  Or at least Gaian.  Or, at minimum, "ever-growing."

In truth, it's weather.  And it's been happening since the dawn of creation.

How amazing it must be to look out the window and see a world they'd never witnessed before.

Just think what sunrise must do to them ...

A Good Line
