Waffling in THREE dimensions.

New Orleans should be abandoned. Thats a bad word. Relocated. The city is below sea level and both dykes have broken. Fiscally, I don't see how it can be sound idea to try and drain, clean, restore, repair, and renovate a city under 20 feet of water. And whats to stop another storm (OR TERRORISTS!!!) from simply breaking the dykes again. The Army Corps of Engineers should simply begin some intense urban renewal uphill for the people that lost their homes. The Sunken City can become a tourism attraction. Fanboats can guide tourists through the lush, gator infested swamps that are now 13th street. The Superdome might be worth saving. It's perfectly situated now to become an excellent aquarium. And the new city? Neo Leans. It'd be just like with Pompei, but with more soul.
Furthermore, if I knew a hurricane or flood was coming, I would promptly (ok, eventually maybe get around to some time later) putting my possessions in ziploc plastic baggies or vaccuum sealed bags or something similar. All properly numerated and cateloged of course. Perhaps with a relatives address on them so they could be sent there once recovered. But then again, I live in Idaho where the natural disasters are limited to atv accidents at the dunes and people ruining everybodies lives and eating all our steak. The food here is nice though. Really, it usually is. Especially breakfast...mmm....
Anyone tried the new giant m&m's yet?
I am also very glad that I don't drive a car, as gasoline is going insane. Opening the national reserves won't aleviate the problem, the refineries were in Mexico. The petroleum stored in those salt mines won't become gasoline fast enough or in a big enough quality to change a thing. It was a mostly symbiolic measure to lower the price per barrel, in my oppinion. Also, it'd be nice to have a less stoic commander in chief.

They could not have picked a more boring name for this school without adding "oatmeal" into it.
BYU-Idaho: Now with more bran!
Anyways, there are some neat quirks to living in this part of Utah (Now with less polygamists!) It is Utah. The only difference is the agriculture. Not many, but a few. Perhaps the best is the chance that you will be hit by a car at a crosswalk. Its fairly likely. I'm shooting for next tuesday myself. Its okay though, the bumpers are nice and broken in. I will now share with you some of my favorite quotations from student resources:
Actually, I'll add some later. I just reread some that I found amusing but revisitation revealed a misconception; likely due to extreme boredum at the time of reading. They had a sort of bitter aftertaste, like styrofoam. I'll scout out some good ones in some free time tomorrow. Tonight I have a Bishopric interview with my roommate and then a dorm meeting. I should be sure to trim my toenails in the communal shower in an ultimate display of passive aggressive hostile behavior towards my dormmates. It'd be shortlived, they are cleansed daily.
