Atlanta monkeys ahoy! I'm going to be trying out for Jeopardy in Atlanta at 2:30 PM, February 11th. Would anybody be up for doing coffee during the evening of Feb. 11th or 12th?

This landslide is from 1995. This landslide was on Monday. Both images are of the hamlet of La Conchita, Calif., where 27 are now missing (CTV) in a tragic carbon-copy disaster. The media has drawn out the story of the torrential rains, but the LA Times [LA Times, possible subscription] has painted out a troublesome pattern of apathy and man-made causes leading up to Monday's repeat disaster. I'm reminded vaguely of Love Canal.
Greg Palast is angry again. ("CBS' cowardice and conflicts behind purge: Network's craven back-down on Bush draft dodge report sure to get a standing Rove-ation at White House," 11 November 2005.)
