So besides an earthquake and a hurricane, not all that much happened last week.
The earthquake only tickled us gently; it was more of a curiosity than a disaster in these parts.
I canâ€™t say anything about Hurricane Irene because she hadnâ€™t arrived as of this writing (We had to put the newspaper out early so we can make sure it gets to you in the optimistic expectation that you will have lights to read it by).
Letâ€™s hope everyone weathered the storm safe and dry. Meanwhile, politics marches on.
