There’s an Explanation for Everything

Watching the news about the tragic happenings in Joplin, Missouri last night, I heard many of the survivors cite the commonly accepted reason for their getting through the tornado: “God was watching out for me.” I couldn’t help wondering, wasn’t it God who sent the storm their way in the first place? The newscaster cleared it up for me: “I guess Mother Nature really had it in for these people.”

Come on, humans. Tornadoes happen for non-supernatural reasons. And to paraphrase Randy Newman: Some people get lost in the storm. Some people get away all right.
