The Man Who Got It Right
I'm a big fan of The Drudge Report, though at times Mr. Drudge has a tendency to blow stories out of proportion. That being said, he is perhaps one of the few people who really saw what Hurricane Katrina was capable of, and reported on it. Sunday, August 28, the night before Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, Matt Drudge was doing his weekly radio show. He wondered how hard New Orleans would be hit, and predicted that the devastation would be incredible. I heard all this and took it all with a grain of salt. It's Drudge, after all, you can't always take him seriously. Well, to his credit, he usually gets the big stories right, and the Katrina Aftermath is another in a long list.
