Weather service smells ratings, optimizes its Ike storm prognostication with”Certain Death,” maximizes language redundancy with “massive 20 ft surge” (yes, massive is a redundancy of the figure 20). Worse strom to hit Texas since Halley’s Comet was first sighted. Yes yes the total energy of a hurricane equals many atomic bombs and throw some explosive hydrogen particle equations in there too. Don’t look around the cornor because massive killer death will hit you between the eyes. Politicise it: Obama team says strom is direct result of McCain policies; McCain blames it on Ted Kennedy’s brain tumor. Creationists blame it on CERN’s atom-smasher. Play some religion hardball–jack it in there like a fast ball slider: Pat Robertson says approaching massive death storm is from masturbation among unmarried Texans.
