Isaac looks like it is more interested in Pensacola than Tampa, as the revised projection has it steering clear of the peninsular Gulf Coast. At least the core will steer clear (if the projections hold); that leaves the oft-ugly right side of the storm to rake Tampa just as the GOP sets up shop there.
Before that, Haiti is slated to take it in the neck. Just what they need; Mother Nature has it in for those poor folks.
Bad injuries make bad law, as I learned in Business Law class; a Little Leaguer whose heart stopped after a line drive got $14.5M from a package of Little League, the bat maker and the bat retailer. The premise is that the bats make the ball go too fast when hit.
That being said, how fast is too fast? Would the Louisville Slugger folks be on the hook for the next killer line drive from a wood bat? Is a sports supplies store on the hook when the definition of safety shifts without a clear ruling? This one is sure to get appealed; it could spell the end of youth baseball if this became precident for baseball law.
How hairy is Harry? He does have a wild side; I recall him getting caught smoking ganja, which prompted a slew of Harry Pothead or Harry Potted jokes.
Anarchy in the US? Tampa would be vunerable to protest, since they could easily cut off St. Pete by blockading a few bridges.
