Quote of note
"Washington, D.C. you'd think by now they'd get the message. An earthquake, a hurricane, are you listening? The American people have done everything they possibly can, now it's time for an act of God and we're getting it." – Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, talking over the weekend in Florida. The Republican has drawn criticism for her comment, and she responded by saying, “I have a great sense of humor, and I think it's important to exhibit that humor sometimes when you are talking to people as well.”
One of the most popular Irene videos is a flippant one – a streaker ran by during a live newscast. Watch the report below.
