WASHINGTON, DC - Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs chairman Joseph I. Lieberman issued a subpoena for Mother Nature to explain why Hurricane Earl failed to cause substantial damage as predicted by most cable news networks.

"The federal government and several state governments wasted substantial taxpayer dollars preparing for an event that never materialized. Taxpayers are rightfully upset. They have been placing the blame for the knee-jerk reaction on Congress, which is unfounded and completely unacceptable."

"Many of our government employees have been stressed to the point where they will require long-term counseling, additional sick-leave and fewer work-hours."

"This will not stand. We intend to get to the bottom of this fiasco and will spare no expense to do so", he added.
