    ATLANTA The death toll in Southeast flooding has reached eight after rescuers found the body of a 15-year-old boy in northwest Georgia following days of heavy rain that turned docile creeks into surging rivers.
    The teen's body was found in the Chattooga River on Tuesday morning.
    The Georgia Emergency Management Agency also reported a new death in Douglas County west of Atlanta, bringing the toll in that county to four people. No more details were immediately available.
    Other victims have included a 2-year-old boy who was swept away from his family when a creek ripped open their west Georgia mobile home Monday.
    Aerial shots showed schools, parking lots and even entire neighborhoods submerged by the deluge, sending some unlucky residents scurrying for higher ground.

    It's not going to be a real emergency until New Orleans floods.

    Do you really have to politicize everything? Have some basic human decency.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Katrina, 2005.
    Never has there been a more politicized natural disaster.
    But, that was different, of course.

    Though the flooding is surely devastating, where is the comparison between increased semi-annual flooding and a city 300,000 being submerged due to a Hurricane?

    We are having a heat wave in Southern California. I am sure a handful of old folks will die of heat stroke as they always do. Should Obama hold a press conference?

    We have local governments for a reason.

    Let me understand your argument. "NUH UH, YOU STARTED IT!!!"

    Am I right?
