Wrath of God
Not this morning.
Since then, the sorrows in Oklahoma, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Louisiana, Virginia, Kansas, in Tuscaloosa, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Redding, Waverly, leave me without glib words.
And now, Joplin, Missouri, that tornadoes scoured from the ground yesterday.
In northwest Missouri, we had a saying, that you could tell when the weather bureau had issued a tornado warning by the number of folks standing on their front lawns looking for the twister.
I don’t say that anymore.
