"Pray for the best ... but prepare for the worst"

As Hurrican Gustav bears down on the Gulf Coast, Republicans gathering in Minneapolis-Saint Paul for the national convention are rearranging the schedule for Monday for the day's business. Only what is absolutely necessary will be taken care of between 3-5:00 p.m. and then the convention will adjourn for the day.

President George W. Bush, who was scheduled to address delegates on Monday evening, has announced he will be in Texas monitoring the response so he will not be here.

In a 4 p.m. press Sunday afternoon(EDT /3 p.m. Minneapolis), Sen. John McCain addressed the nation and the convention, asking that we take off our Republican hats and put our American hats on as we watch what will happen with the hurricane.

The Louisiana delegation will be flown home as necessary by RNC; some have taken them up on that offer. The hurricane is due to hit at noon Monday.

Our prayers and thoughts go to those on the Gulf Coast.
