The Whip OK, I admit it . . . I've got Whip Fatigue. Just not feeling any motivation to post lately. I suppose I'll snap out of it sooner or later, but for now, posting will remain light to nonexistent.

The Whip Alert readers will notice that this isn't actually a "Morning" Whip. It is in fact almost 5 in the afternoon. Fact is that the Whip is getting too complex for one guy (me) to try to put out before noon, given everything else I want to do (not to mention what Snookums wants me to do). So, say goodbye to the "Morning Whip" and say hi to the "Daily Whip." We'll see how that goes . . .

#10: Airlines in trouble
#9: The Kansas City Hornets?
#8: White Sox 6, Royals 5
#7: The "refugee" debate
#6: Superdome may have to come down
#5: Katrina: What worked?
#4: Americans aren't buying the blame spin
#3: Escape from New Orleans
#2: The collapse of the NOPD
#1: Is New Orleans being evacuated? Or not?
