Hurricane Florence Leaves Thousands of Dead Fish on I-40

Hurricane Florence Leaves Thousands of Dead Fish on I-40:  Authorities report that the massive flooding caused by Hurricane Florence has resulted in thousands of dead fish washing up onto Interstate 40, leaving behind a horrible stench when the flood waters finally receded.  

In response, Fox News say it is investigating whether some of those fish may have swum up from Mexican waters and were in the area illegally.  In addition, President Trump says he has people looking into the possibility that Hillary or Barack Obama may have been sending dead fish down to the area as bogus email attachments.  

Personally, I don’t know about any of that, but one thing I do know is - if Scott Pruitt were still running the EPA, all those damn fish would have been dead by now from industrial pollution and this horrible stench North Carolina is facing would never have occurred.

That said, health insurers have issued a statement claiming all the fish that died had pre-existing conditions - so there’s no way they can be held financially responsible.  Anyway, the bottom line is, President Trump warned us all that this hurricane was gonna be very wet - so it isn’t as if we weren’t forewarned.

I was driving on 40 in North Carolina Saturday and yesterday. I guess I was too far inland to see dead fish. 

I was down to play a music festival benefitting the local food bank, founded by my old bandleader, and I go every year. It was supposed to be the weekend before last but it was an outdoor festival in North Carolina, so as the musicians up here all said when I told them where I was scheduled originally:

”That ain’t gonna happen.”

So they moved it by a week.

Interesting.  They mentioned the town (area) where this is located, but I don't remember the name of the town.

Johnny, like I say, when they're geese marching, duck walk with attitude. Or maybe fall back on those slick-floor high school suicide drills squeaking for erasures.
