HURRICANE RITA.... Maybe this is something, maybe it's not, but a reader sent me this map showing a variety of computer projections for the path of Tropical Storm Rita, currently off the coast of Florida and gaining strength. The official forecast from the National Hurricane Center shows it making landfall off the Texas coast, but their forecast is an outlier. Other projections suggest it will jog north and hit Louisiana. If it does, it will likely make landfall on Friday as a Category 1 or 2 hurricane.

Like I said, it might be nothing. But if there's even a 10% chance of it passing near New Orleans, that strikes me as a pretty good reason to go slow on encouraging residents to come back.
