Hurricane schmurricane. It's football time again, fellow red-blooded Americans, and there's some pressing questions being asked in the news media; namely: How's Brett Favre's family doing? The Louisiana Tech grad's folks were mercilessly targeted by Hurricane Katrina when the storm swept through three Gulf Shore states the past few days, but word has come in ... and they're fine. Kudos to the print and TV media for covering this whopper of a story.
In other newsbites -- New Orleans is a hellscape of early-'80s Salvadoran proportions. Mahalo.
