i'm not going out today, it's supposed to be in the 90s. and there is no wind for the first time this week. it's a beautiful day out, perfect for tourists. the strip must be a zoo today.
i've been watching the coverage of the devastation in alabama and it's tragic. part of it is knowing that what's gone is gone and none of it will ever be the same. there are no longer the resources to rebuild after catastrophe. the twin towers, new orleans . . . what's gone is gone and tends to stay gone now.
