For the second time in two weeks, violent storms have left a trail of carnage in the Southern U.S. Even here, in the Northeast, there were tornado warnings for parts of New York and New Jersey. Damnit, global warming is happening and it is causing severe storms. I never lived in a goddamn tornado zone until recently, and I haven't moved! The time to address the problem has long passed.
Tonight, I am planning on attending an opera in Lincoln Center, in the David Koch auditorium (phooey!). David Koch also affixed his name to the dinosaur wing of the American Museum of Natural History, this really pissed me off at first (the dinosaur wing of the AMNH is one of my favorite places on the planet), but I have come to realize that having David Koch's name on it is a good thing. What better tribute to David Koch could there be than a room filled with fossils (fossil fuels being the foundation of his inherited wealth) of extinct animals (the policies fostered by Koch's businesses and his pet politicians are contributing to an ongoing mass extinction event).
Let David Fucking Koch believe that the Koch Hall in the AMNH is an honor- it's really an indictment.
UPDATE: Holy crap, there are reports that the tornado which hit Tuscaloosa was a mile in diameter!
