Thanks to all my friends around the country who reached out to me and made sure I was nowhere near the tragedy in western KY last weekend. Thankfully, Louisville is 100+ miles away from the impacted area, though Louisville did get some edge-effect lightning, high winds and rain. I can attest that it was a weirdly warm storm in December. But the family in Louisville and eastern KY are all fine.
I haven’t written about the folks who got wiped out by the tornadoes because, what can you say? Awful. Tragic. And that assclown Rand Paul now is asking for Federal relief funds for KY – he should, that’s his job – but after his lobbying to block relief for tragedies in other US regions because “we spend too much money”, it’s a bit much. He’s a hypocrite, an embarrassment and KY voters should dump him. They won’t, but they should.
