An Inordinate Fondness for Beetles

Just to get a jump on it -- I'm sure that in a day or two there will be idiots claming Hurricane Katrina is a sign of "God's wrath" or some such nonsense.

In the spirit of E.O. Wilson, I would like to claim that the only thing you can really say for sure about the mind of God as it relates to such matters is, "God sees fit to visit natural disasters upon hazardous areas, whether people live there or not."

I hope that Louisiana and New Orleans get through it all okay -- but the situation is grim.
