  1. This is a dumb question:
    Can you be struck by lightening if you’re laying in bed with the window open?
    Cause that’s what I like to do so I can watch the weather from bed. 🙁

    1. obsessive copy editor struck while waving pen
      That seems unlikely.
      It says something about me that I was most bothered by “one of nature’s number one killers” than by the lightning danger itself.

    1. Now more than ever
      Tanned, rested, ready, zombie, lightning-crowded, cloud-borne.. In your heart you know he’s right. HAPPY HALLOWEEN! NIXON’S THE ONE!

  2. re
    Gotta keep us alarmed about everything.
    Around every turn lurks some evil force of nature or terrorist ready to do me in and take away my freedom.
    Good thing the federal gov’t is around to rescue me from the rain and myself.

  3. My dads office got struck by lightning a few hours ago. Burnt a wall, blew up a transformer and a fence motor and covered a couple cars with black.

  4. DAMMIT !!! and I just fashioned a new tinfoil hat.
    I thought women were one of nature’s number one killers.
    and how can something be “,…ONE OF nature’s number one killers” – Is Rumsfeld reporting the weather now?
