Or, has it all been just about some property deal? Are they waiting for the "undesirable" elements (poor Blacks), to just give up, so that they, or some lobbies, can redevelop New Orleans, to suit a more "acceptable" (rich) clientèle?

Most rich clientèle didn't get rich by making bad real estate deals. Who, in their right mind, would be foolish enough to pour their investment into real estate that, on average, is 6 feet below sea level? If you know someone who will, let me know their name and address. I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell them!

As for "engineered" hurricanes, get serious. Hurricanes have been around for at least 3,000 years. The first European explorers encountered them on their voyages across the Atlantic, and native American Indians on the East Coast tell tales of them going back many centuries. Of course, as most know, the Mayan god Hurakan is where we get the word today.

Maybe Moore was right.

Maybe Gustave is proof that there is a God.

Hurricanes are a force of nature and we should not wish them on the populace of any state or region, but they do happen.

In this case, however, the timing, which seemed to be a disaster for the RNC, has really given the Republicans a chance to showcase the advancements that have been made in hurricane preparedness and the improved coordination of governmental agencies.

This evacuation was so well organized that there were even contingencies for evacuating pets.

And when it is all said and done, the convention will go one.

No, I don't think God planned the events to benefit the Republicans, but I can't help but wonder what Moore thinks about his crass statement now.

Oh I don't know... but maybe, just sometimes it is best to read the WHOLE story, instead of listening to the provocateur minions and their daily "Librul Outrages"

I mean the least that I would do before getting the pitch fork and torch the right wings favorite "Librul" monster

An Open Letter to God, from Michael Moore

Dear God,

The other night, James Dobson's organization asked all believers to pray for a storm on Thursday night so that the Obama acceptance speech outdoors in Denver would have to be canceled.

I see that You have answered Dr. Dobson's prayers -- except the storm You have sent to earth is not over Denver, but on its way to New Orleans! In fact, You have scheduled it to hit Louisiana at exactly the moment that George W. Bush is to deliver his speech at the Republican National Convention.

Now, heavenly Father, we all know You have a great sense of humor and impeccable timing. To send a hurricane on the third anniversary of the Katrina disaster AND right at the beginning of the Republican Convention was, at first blush, a stroke of divine irony. I don't blame You, I know You're angry that the Republicans tried to blame YOU for Katrina by calling it an "Act of God" -- when the truth was that the hurricane itself caused few casualties in New Orleans. Over a thousand people died because of the mistakes and neglect caused by humans, not You.

Some of us tried to help after Katrina hit, while Bush ate cake with McCain and twiddled his thumbs. I closed my office in New York and sent my entire staff down to New Orleans to help. I asked people on my website to contribute to the relief effort I organized -- and I ended up sending over two million dollars in donations, food, water, and supplies (collected from thousands of fans) to New Orleans while Bush's FEMA ice trucks were still driving around Maine three weeks later.

But this past Thursday night, the Washington Post reported that the Republicans had begun making plans to possibly postpone the convention. The AP had reported that there were no shelters set up in New Orleans for this storm, and that the levee repairs have not been adequate. In other words, as the great Ronald Reagan would say, "There you go again!"

So the last thing John McCain and the Republicans needed was to have a split-screen on TVs across America: one side with Bush and McCain partying in St. Paul, and on the other side of the screen, live footage of their Republican administration screwing up once again while New Orleans drowns.

So, yes, You have scared the Jesus, Mary and Joseph out of them, and more than a few million of your followers tip their hats to You.

But now it appears that You haven't been having just a little fun with Bush & Co. It appears that Hurricane Gustav is truly heading to New Orleans and the Gulf coast. We hear You, O Lord, loud and clear, just as we did when Rev. Falwell said You made 9/11 happen because of all those gays and abortions. We beseech You, O Merciful One, not to punish us again as Pat Robertson said You did by giving us Katrina because of America's "wholesale slaughter of unborn children." His sentiments were echoed by other Republicans in 2005.

So this is my plea to you: Don't do this to Louisiana again. The Republicans got your message. They are scrambling and doing the best they can to get planes, trains and buses to New Orleans so that everyone can get out. They haven't sent the entire Louisiana National Guard to Iraq this time -- they are already patrolling the city streets. And, in a nod to I don't know what, Bush's head of FEMA has named a man to help manage the federal government's response. His name is W. Michael Moore. I kid you not, heavenly Father. They have sent a man with both my name AND W's to help save the Gulf Coast.

So please God, let the storm die out at sea. It's done enough damage already. If you do this one favor for me, I promise not to invoke your name again. I'll leave that to the followers of Dr. Dobson and to those gathering this week in St. Paul. Your faithful servant and former seminarian, Michael Moore

P.S. To all of God's fellow children who are reading this, the city of New Orleans has not yet recovered from Katrina.

And, if you do live along the Gulf Coast, please take all necessary safety precautions immediately.
