I went outside to get the newspapers this morning. The sky is clear in the Midwest and there is a hint of Fall in the crisp morning air. Big 10 football starts tomorrow, as certain a sign as any that Summer is almost over.
I opened the New York Times, and saw on the front page a picture that captures one of the many moments of death and devastation that is Hurricane Katrina. If you’ve seen it, you know what I mean.
I then went inside and called my office, informing them that I would be extending the long holiday weekend.
Back next Wednesday with our regularly scheduled subject matter.
