Never mind the quality, feel the width...

...and never mind the GIGO computer models that the green left and Al Goreful use to predict climatastrophe, take a look around.. Ever vigilant PKH spotted this, from Christopher Brooker in the UK Telegraph...It was delightfully appropriate that, as large parts of Argentina were swept by severe blizzards last week, on a scale never experienced before, the city of Nashville, Tennessee, should have enjoyed the coolest July 21 in its history, breaking a record established in 1877.
