I Still Wish I Was In San Diego
I don't know what's harder, watching your childhood go up in flames on television or in person. San Diego is the center of the universe- or at least my universe. I have a better understanding of the emotions that flowed during Katrina. I understand why Harry Conick Jr. went on tour giving all proceeds to the rebuilding of New Orleans, Elen Degeneres spends time promoting new businesses in New Orleans, and the hords of people that want to move back to a city that is covered in mold and prone to disaster. Now nature's wrath has been let loose on my town.
I'm not going to go on tour to promote my hometown, people tend to pay me NOT to sing, and my talk show deal has some minor details to work out. So all I can do is ask you, my six readers, if you could offer a prayer for San Diego. Ask that the winds might stop just long enough to contain the fire, I'd be very grateful. My friend's homes are encircled by flames- the sky is cloaked in black soot, and one of our countries prettiest cities is covered in ash. If you're planning a vacation next year, think about giving your tourism dollars to San Diego, or New Orleans.
