On The Effectiveness Of Ceremonies

In connection with yesterday's ceremonies to spare Haiti the brunt of Hurricane Tomas, we find this article today:

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) -- What had been Hurricane Tomas is now a disorganized tropical depression, and forecasters don't expect it to regain hurricane force.

The storm, with winds near 35 mph, is about 390 miles southwest of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and moving west-northwest at about 6 mph.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami believes it will reach Haiti by Friday after brushing past Jamaica.

One forecaster says he's baffled by the sharp decrease in the storm and the hurricane center says there's still a possibility that it will regain strength.

Tomas has already killed at least 14 people and left seven missing in the eastern Caribbean nation of St. Lucia.

That speaks for itself.

And, of course, a very special thank you, thank you, thank you, gracias, gracias, muchas gracias.
