Some diversionary thoughts 

From a fellow Long Beach High School alum, Raj Sabharwal, who is now living in Washington, D.C.: Just wanted to send my best wishes to everyone in Long Beach and the rest of the coast. Your blog is great way for us coast brats who've moved away to stay informed. Dad's safe in Richmond right now, but we are all worried about our friends and extended family back home. Stay safe and hunker down. For a little diversion in this stressful time, here are some random thoughts: 1) When this is over, someone please tell Tucker Carlson and the other national newscasters that "St. Louis" is in Missouri, and we call our town "Bay St. Louis". Hope they don't try to pronounce Pascagoula, Gautier, or Delisle. That's the only good thing about seeing your hometown on TV, is to laugh at outsiders trying to figure things out. 2) How bout them Bearcats! Good to see the football team win the first game of the year. I'm thinking playoffs..... Be happy with a victory to open the season, but don't bank on the postseason just yet. 3)Tell Jim Mashek that the Nationals fans in DC still have some hope, but we desperately need some offense to get back in the wildcard race. Its been great having a baseball team in DC this year and the best part is that I only live a few blocks from the stadium. Nothing beats walking to a baseball game on a summer night. Well, except of course for a fall Saturday night in Tiger Stadium, Geaux Tigers! That editor's note was from me. I caught a couple of Nats games in DC this summer, and have become a fan of the team from afar. It's been a good ride. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone back home. Thanks, Raj.
