Sign of the Times
Today is Monday. August 27. The scheduled start of the Republican National Convention (now delayed), being held here in the Tampa Bay area. It is also the day forecasters expect the strongest winds and most amount of rain from Tropical Storm (possibly Hurricane) Isaac. To them both I say this:
You are making traffic difficult. Roads are closed because of you both. Utility services are taxed because of you both. Wireless communication networks are overrun with traffic and suffering tower outages, preventing my normal level of access for voice and data communication. Local trunk lines for Internet Service Providers in the area are bottle-necking due to the packet collisions resulting in your presences. All because of your combined presences.
Leave. Now. Please. I didn’t ask for either of you to be here, and you’re both making my daily life — and my job — more difficult. Just. Go. Away.
