Right out of the Horses Mouth
“Remarkable” was the word President Bush used after touring New Orleans on Monday and seeing first hand the progress that has been made over the last year.
The day started with breakfast with Mayor Ray Nagin, attending a service of remembrance at St. Louis Cathedral and visiting a local high school. Bush also acknowledged that the devastation that hit the region will most likely take years to recover from. Despite the efforts that are being made, the area has suffered unthinkable damages and keeps pushing forward, only time will tell.
Judge clips wings of flight attendants
Northwest Airlines filed a motion in New York Federal Court recently to stop flight attendants from walking out on the job. The airline received an injunction while the judge reviews the issues at hand. A strike would be devastating for the bankrupt airline and its passengers. Having to deal with fuel costs and still trying to keep prices at a competitive range the airline is in a bind and plan to pass the cuts across the board.
The attendants are angry about recent company imposed pay cuts and new work rules.
Aimless in the Atlantic

Meteorologists are not sure what Ernesto is going to bring to the U.S. but are sure to give it a name.
