God bless the National Guardsmen (and women) helping others in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. It's nice to read about success and teamwork for a change.
Sandy gives us The Beer Prayer, which I'm pretty sure will be recited by heart in Helen:
Which art in barrels,
Hallowed be thy drink,
Thy will be drunk,
(I will be drunk),
At home as I am in the tavern.
Give us this day our foamy head,
And forgive us our spillages,
As we forgive those who spill against us,
and lead us not to incarceration,
But deliver us from hangovers,
For thine is the beer,
The bitter and the lager,
Forever and ever,
El Capitan shall certainly beat Dr. Tundra at this fiendish game.
