A Modest Proposal

At this moment, Hurricane Katrina is pounding Louisiana, causing hundreds of millions of dollars of damage, killing people and destroying homes, and most importantly, killing dozens of endangered species of worms, mollusks, and coastal marine wildlife. This kind of havoc must not be permitted to continue. I call on Congress to take action immediately to ban hurricanes. How can our elected leaders, those charged with protecting and taking care of us, sit idly by while these merciless storms pound our coasts? Solve the problem once and for all: ban hurricanes!
