  1. Just like wack a mole, he keeps popping up.

  2. If you raise a basketball courts floor a foot won’t the baskets also be raised a foot? What’s Micheal Mann’s degree in?

  3. Storms like this (and who decided it needed a name?) have been part of the news as long as I’ve been following the news. A windy, snowy event in New England in winter! What a surprise! The last time I remember this much noise about a snowstorm was January 1977 — you know, when it was being blamed on global cooling.

  4. The media conveniently leaves out the fact that humans are building structures in more risk prone coastal areas than in the past.
