This picture just showed up in an e-mail from Jack Thompson.
There was no explanation, other than the subject line:
First feeder bands from Hurricane Ike hit Miami!
Color me confused. Is the man growing a sense of humor? Learning PhotoShop?
Maybe it's symbolism: the pole represents his law license. The hurricane is the Florida Bar and he's trying to hang on...
UPDATE: So it appears that Thompson may be preparing for a second career (you never know when you might need one of those)... as a weatherman.
In a followup e-mail Thompson claims that US news organizations are underreporting the upcoming Hurricane Ike because it's not as sexy as the recent Gustav, which threatened both New Orleans and the Republican National Convention. Even his BFFs at Fox are guilty, says Thompson (now is that any way to get air time?).
