St. Louis dodged the bullet this week, but then got hit with the canons. From Jo Mannies, my favorite columnist at St. Louis Today:
President George W. Bush is cancelling his plans to visit St. Louis on Thursday, and is instead flying out to California to view the damage caused by the wildfires and comfort victims.
Vice President Dick Cheney will be coming here Thursday instead.
President Bush flying to California during the disaster…that’s interesting. He did the same thing during Katrina. Must be a jerk reaction.
Oh, sorry, I meant knee jerk reaction. Damn keyboard.
