...the drought, now in about its 20th month, also sparked deadly wildfires and dropped lake levels to their lowest point for this time of year since 1978.

hey kay, hate to remind you, but there ain't no money. your buddyboy awol's spending it all over in iraq. and, um, in regards to money going toward disaster assistance, you might want to talk to louisiana on how that's coming along.
