Video link This interview of Sarah Palin by Katie Couric is almost too painful to watch. I can only imagine Palin during the vice presidential debates with Joe Biden. It will be like Godzilla stepping on Bambi. -Dave

Posted by: Dave In: Design|Political|Weird

You think Karl Rove owns one of these? I think he does. After the Hurricane Ike devastation, this is perhaps the most disturbing thing I’ve seen in the last week.  Is it art? by Phillip Toledano Link (via BoingBoing)

Hurricane Gustav

Posted by: Dave In: Weather

We’re safe and sound in Houston as Gustav makes landfall in Louisiana this morning.  Some friends from New Orleans are staying with us until the hurricane blows over. We’ve been watching hurricane coverage on and off this morning and it looks like the levees are holding in NOLA, but lots of folks are without power. […]
