the new windy city

things here are super interesting.
tons of people have called and texted to make sure we're okay. we are. thank you - you're great.
alida, matt, rance and i keep running outside every chance we get to look at the sky. it's not too much more windy than chicago might be on a super windy day, but the wind is hot and heavy. right now, clouds are flying by like one of those fast-motion time sequences. everything appears trippy, like a strange film interstitial around us - kinda like something in requiem for a dream (but not herion-y), or the video for madonna's ray of light. remember that?

speaking of music videos, in lighthearted news- i hear the mtv music awards were last night. i don't know what happened, but i'd assume some people got some moonmen. i'd also put money on kanye west singing my new favorite jam, golddigger. am i right? i hope i'm right, because that song rules.

one rally down, two to go today. the first was very early, 7am. who doesn't want pep then?

people are lined up in the lobby to check into our hotel. we are obviously amazed by everything going on, but have to remember to be cautious - talking about everything with nervous excitement is pretty thoughtless, considering these may be people who evacuated. boyd owns three properties in louisiana - this place (delta downs), a place called samstown, and another called treasure island. they aren't sure if treasure island is going to fare very well. scary.

Good grief, we *get* it. There's a *hurricane*. Enough.
