RNC trims back practically cancels convention

The RNC has announced it will only do what it has to do at this convention. They cannot simply cancel the convention due to party rules and election law. There will be no party like atmosphere, no partisan speeches, monumental moments at all. There may be a fundraising effort for hurricane victims on the floor.

“At some point between Monday and Thursday evening, we will convene once again to complete the activities needed to qualify Senator McCain and Governor Palin for the ballot in all 50 states. Beyond that, all we can say is that we will monitor what is happening and make decisions about other convention business as details become available.” said campaign Manager Rick Davis

With Hurricane Gustav headed for New Orleans the world will be watching how we react to this crisis. I'm already feeling better about the preparation. It appears everyone in New Orleans who wants to leave New Orleans will be able too. They have trains and busses frequently leaving the city for other parts of the country. Mayor Nagin has said if you stay in New Orleans you are on your own.

I'm planning on going down to Louisana ASAP after this storm to help with recovery. My girlfriend is from the state and has family in the area, not New Orleans. Please pray for those in the path of this storm.
