In which I prove that I sometimes emerge from the Adult Swim Aqua 

Haven't had a chance to write about these, but here are some other del.icio.us tags that I've recently created:

And it all started here:

Would New Orleans and the nearby Gulf Coast [had suffered] so terribly...if President Carter beat back Reagan in 1980?

I am wondering if those voters in Louisiana and Mississippi who helped polluter-allied Reagan win in 1980 would have found themselves fated differently under a second Carter term. If Carter came in, we could have had an alternative fuels program and tighter auto emission standards in effect by now.

Sparked by his prodding, we might have had decades of global warming controls in place.

Whose to say if those steps might not have rendered the waters of the Atlantic and Gulf even 1/100th of a degree cooler than they are now?...

Since hurricanes need warm water to feed, what if that temperature difference- however slight- might have caused Katrina to be slightly weaker? What if that, in turn, would have caused Lake Pontchartrain, which ultimately connects to the Gulf-to be a little "kinder and gentler?"

In this cause-and-effect natural world of ours, this might have meant the big brackish lake that forms New Orleans' northern boundary might have crested just short of the levees rather than breaching them.

Maybe, maybe, maybe. On the other hand, perhaps a Carter win would have meant different strategies for the Department of Agriculture, resulting in additional promotions and visibility for Bennett C. Landreneau. And maybe, just maybe, after the September 11 attack (perhaps during the presidency of Joe Biden), and the resulting calls to create a unified Department of Homeland Security...well, maybe, just maybe, Landreneau may have been named to that important post.

Then things would have REALLY been fun.
