Now, I'm an atheist, and not one to believe that some invisible cloud being can move around the weather to punish the wicked. But, keep in mind three things:
  1. Florida, home of Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris, is a tornado magnet.
  2. Indiana legislators have made some really, really stupid proposals in recent months.
  3. Only yesterday, a local weatherman pointed out that this tornado season was exceptional, because no one had been killed.
And then:
An overnight tornado ripped a 20-mile-long path through southwestern Indiana, killing at least 22 people and injuring some 230 others, officials said Sunday.
Like I said, I don't believe in the whole divine retribution thing, but if I did, I'd be convinced that Indiana Republicans, through their intolerance and stupidity, had done something to piss off someone with their finger on the "really bad weather" button.
