Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius issued an executive order today to close the loophole in the state's tornado reporting to the Federal Weather Service. She was quoted as saying that she had not been aware that Kansas only reported actual verified tornadoes to the National Weather Service while high winds and breezes were allowed to go unreported in a very unfortunate loophole which may have led to last week's tragic deaths of a number of people in one Kansas town.
President Bush announced that he was assigning Karl Rove, Vice President Dick Cheney and former CIA director George Tenet to investigate twisters as threats to National Security and possibly a Democrat (sic) plot to undermine the American people's confidence in his administration.
Both the Governor of Kansas and President Bush agreed that Wind had been given too much freedom since 1939 when it was glorified in the Wizard of Oz and that it was time to choose public safety over freedom. Again.
