How to Have a Happy Hurricane

27th August 2011

Let me be brief, as there is a hurricane coming and I have lots to do. But I really need to say this: Over the last two days, I have heard many politicians and emergency officials on the East Coast reminding us to be “smart” or “cautious.”  But I wish that one of them would […]
