Me and Max

Here is a picture of me with National Hurricane Center Director Max Mayfield.

Being the weather freak that I am, I invited Max to speak to Congressional staffers for one of the monthly informational "lunch briefings" my office puts together. He talked about the forecasted hurricane season for this year (which is supposed to be nasty).

He gave a great presentation, and all I got was this lousy picture of me half-obscured by him as he finished shaking my hand. He was also suffering from a nasty head-cold, which means I'll probably get sick in time for my vacation that starts in 26 minutes.

NYC Emergency Operations Center

This is where everything is seen and heard in NYC. I call it the Big Brother room. Very cool.

To "Anonymous"

Dear Anonymous,

Thanks for hiding behind anonymity when trashing the views expressed on my site. It really speaks volumes to your character. I always find that people lurking in the shadows have some of the most well-rounded views.

You claim to be tolerant, yet you trash my opinions while expecting the world to accept yours. You call me ignorant, while you don't back up any of your sarcasm with anything intelligent. If I'm proving "how wrong [you] are," then I have done a service to the world.

This is a blog - meaning, it's a collection of my thoughts and humor. If you don't agree with it, start your own blog. You can make it as friendly to gays, criminals, child molesters and liberals as you want! And guess what... if I disagree with you... I'll have the guts to actually back up my comments with a name.

Thanks for visiting though. I'm sure your anonymous comments left you feeling great about yourself. I mean, that's what you lefties do, right? You tell people how tolerant you are as long as it fits in with your warped views on life. Heaven help the people who disagree with you - those people can't be anything more than old-fashioned racists, bigots and homophobes.

Wow. Thanks for opening my eyes, Anonymous.
