Fifty Damn Days

It was an enormous announcement today...UK PM Gordon Brown announced that there is a coming "catastrophe" of floods, droughts and killer heatwaves within fifty days....unless world leaders agree a deal on climate change,.

Yes, fifty days that we have left to live.

I wanted to be the first to pass this to you folks in Bama. The words from Prime Minister Brown of the Uk...is that we are mostly going to suffer terribly from global warming in the coming days.

Gordon was even nice about this....indicating that there is no "plan B".

I sat there, for a good five minutes contemplating this announcement from Gordon. Frankly, I'm not used to someone telling there can't be a "plan B". I've never had a soul in the Air Force to ever tell me I couldn't have a "plan B". I've never known anyone from Bama to insist on no "plan B".

So that's it...fifty days left, and then the woeful days come. I'm thinking....what the hell...it's time to pull out the charge card and buy $50k of fireworks and fire off all of them in one evening. Maybe I'll buy a $100k car and arrange payments to start after the 50 days. Maybe I'll even go down and register as a Democrat. Well...maybe I'm taking this a bit too serious.

I'm pretty sure Gordon was pumped up on coffee and donuts when he said this....and he's not totally sure of anything.
