True, but I like Red Eye, it's a pretty funny show.

As well as those who buy into MSNBC and all the others, Journalism as a whole is dead and an embarrassment. Both sides have their pundits and outlets with the only goal being to sell as much advertising as possible to a certain demographgic. Its all about the money, truth, facts and telling both sides of a story fairly are an inconvenience.

Unfortunately there are a lot of people who are the dumbest of the dumb

extra0 I see there's still no power for 84k people in the NY/NJ area. 3 weeks is a horribly long time to be without power.

Been there: growing up near the gulf coast (where there's exponentially more road blocking trees to break) there were hurricanes that kept us without power for months.

Some may say "that's what generators are for", but try jumping over a huge snapped pine tree every 10 feet while walking several miles to a gas station...or, if you didn't already own a generator, lugging one back from the hardware store (if they even had any).

mani I live in Northern NJ. We didn't get it too bad as some did, but the winds did some big damage. Friend of friend was killed in his living room. A tree came down on the roof and drove him and his wife through the floor boards. He didn't make it, but his wife did.

A friend lost his house in Brooklyn, washed right off of its foundation. Luckily, another friend took him and his family in and they are safe.

My brother's company was destroyed and now he has no job. He got laid off after spending three days helping clean up the office. So if anyone needs a google certified adwords/ppc employee...

Definitely wasn't as bad as Katrina, but tell that to the people that have lost a loved one or all of their possessions....

faridk89 Fox News mocks Canadian Army - really got Canadians pissed off! - YouTube

meanwhile bonehead fox news does shit like this, even though the reality is that whenever Canada or the States need each others help, we go in no questions asked...

Bones Yeah, a bunch of friends of mine with Ottawa Hydro got the call late that night to pack the trucks and get moving.

Around here, we all remember how many Vermont, New Hampshire and New York plated repair trucks showed up the day after the '98 Ice Storm.

Geo-politics aside, this is what neighbours do

Optikal_Illuzion I know Ontario has sent a bunch of people down the help restore power and to rebuild. Also, the TTC has sent many techs to help repair the subway...

goodluck and recover quickly!

killclimbz You're doing a fine job alaric.

alaric Here in CNY the damage has been pretty minimal. I know a couple FDNY guys and a few Long Island firefighters and they've been extremely busy. Some of the pictures they've sent me are crazy.

The Ithaca Fire Department's swift water rescue team went before the storm to stand-by and prep. I am very good friends with one of the guys on the team and they were super busy. They made 60+ saves... I'm extremely proud of them.

My department is deploying a few people (myself included) to the region to help out fighting fire as well as search and rescue operations. I'll keep you guys as updated as I'm able to.
