I’m living in a disaster area!!
I read this and I thought they meant the bagels. I’m from New York originally – thought it’s been decades – and you can’t get good bagels down here. What does it take to make a bagel?
Apparently President Obama meant something else. From the White House
The President today declared a major disaster exists in the Commonwealth of Virginia and ordered Federal aid to supplement commonwealth and local recovery efforts in the area affected by the Remnants of Tropical Storm Lee during the period of September 8-9, 2011.
Federal funding is available to commonwealth and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by the Remnants of Tropical Storm Lee in the counties of Caroline, Essex, Fairfax, King and Queen, King George, Prince William, and Westmoreland and the independent City of Alexandria.
Oh well, I’ll have to keep eating these crummy round slabs of gussied up Wonderbread. But I guess Obama’s union friends will get to replace the roof on the Post Office.
