For those in southern Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi, we don't need to tell you about the Category 4 storm currently tearing its way north in the Gulf of Mexico. For those who aren't there - or don't know - a massive, massive hurricane is bearing down on the Gulf Coast of the United States, one that New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin is now calling "the storm of the century". At the request of a number of readers, we're putting up this short post - not to announce news updates about the storm (we suggest you rely on television, radio, the internet and other people for that) - but to provide a forum for interested parties to converse. Good luck, all, and Godspeed. [CNN]
