Oh weren't our news people disappointed.
Hurricane Rita failed to live up to their hopes.
Apart from some of the Cajun communities of Louisiana, most of the immediate population got off quite lightly compared to Katrina. And didn't that just piss off all the news crews who were sent there to report on the 'devastation' that never happened.
Tell you what guys, instead of rushing back to your cosy television studios, take the next flight to India and report on the terrible rains happening over there now where so far, eight people have died as a result. Oh but I am forgetting. It's only India. Not good copy.
Give us all a break BBC, ITV, Sky et al and report some good news going on around the world. There must be some somewhere.
