Waiting for Joaquin?

As the assembled media masses dutifully work themselves into a storm-gasm over onrushing Hurricane Joaquin, I thought it might be a good time to reprise my Washington Times piece, "Waiting for Floyd." As always, comments welcome.

See, now they're saying the storm track makes a U.S. landfall unlikely. So after all that blustering about Joaquin (which would've gotten top billing on newscasts had it not been for the Oregon shooting), we have another hurricane that turns out to be much ado about little...at least where U.S. residents are concerned. I'm not discounting the damage done offshore, but my piece was meant as a critique of mass-media news, which is chiefly packaged for American consumption, so the point stands.
