One of my friends is supposed to fly from Barcelona to Atlanta tomorrow - right when the fucking hurricane is supposed to start happening.
StoryLeap.com is advertising that they are willing to pay $30 each for brief posts from writers living anywhere where people are preparing to deal with Hurricane Gustav.
They want stories about "experince and observations about preparations for and the actual hurricane."
I saw the ad on Elance, but I'm sure there is contact information on StoryLeap.
Somewhere some tribal elder is reading about hurricanes and global warming and thinking to himself "This never happened back when we were allowed to throw virgins into volcanoes."
