What's the question mark for?


Bush was caught writing a note to Condi Rice at the UN today. It reads "I think I MAY NEED A BATHROOM break?"

Seriously, no joke here.

Leaving the mix of capital and lower case letters alone, why the question mark? Many things about Bush remind me of Ron Burgundy, but this nails it.



It looks like it continues to say "Is this possib..." (it could either be possibly or possible)

Katrina Imagery - 5


Imagery of the area near the bridge collapse in Waveland Mississippi, which, as the article suggests, was practically wiped off the map.

Tweaking NOAA's Katrina maps

Katrina Imagery - 4


Here are some various snapshots I have taken from Katrina imagery. I've neglected to note the location for many of them but here they are.

An amusement park somewhere along the Gulf Coast





Marina



What appears to be old ships sunken to make an artificial coral reef





Some sort of trucks, possibly ambulances, make their way through the water in new Orleans, not far from the superdome



Water cascades downhill in New Orleans



The Army Corps of Engineers believe this barge may have slammed into the levee during the hurricane, possibly causing the breach at Surekote Road.
