Flooding, Fire, Greed and Vengeance

The Mississippi River is flooding ... wait, is that a shark?!?

It’s been a rough few months, hasn’t it? What with tornadoes rippin’ up half the country, wildfires burning out of control and now the Mississippi River slithering into peoples’ homes and lives, you begin to wonder what kind of plague we’re going to get next.

We’ve all but forgotten about those earthquakes/tsunami in Japan, and the earthquakes in New Zealand, which were just a couple months ago. And don’t forget last year – man. On top of all that we have gasoline prices approaching record levels and those Al Qaeda nutcases promising they will get back to us with some big, fiery sendoff for Osama bin Laden.

It may seem kind of frivolous to spin a few tunes in this time of misery, but it helps to remember: we’re all in this together, and if we’re not going to help each other out, who is? And when all else fails, light a candle.
