#1 I remember back with Hurricane Irene the democrates were quite pleased with the prospect of jobs created to fix the damage which would be created; even NC Gov. Bev "don't need no elections" Perdue had to come out and say, "shaddup."

#4 I was just wondering: Would the Romney campaign be legally allowed to donate campaign money to the victims or not?

#5 Doubtful, EC. But I'm sure he's already donated a lot of the money that he earned.

#7  Would the Romney campaign be legally allowed to donate campaign money to the victims or not?

The Romney campaign is collecting canned goods and other non-perishables for those hit by the storm, European Conservative, which at this point is better than money.

I heard estimates today that about half the cost of rebuilding will be covered by insurance, for what that's worth.

#8 TW, which is good news unless you work for or invest in an insurance company.
