The kids are back in school and parents have returned to work after summer vacations. While life gets back to normal for most families, a hurricane named Gustav slams into the Gulf Coast. Hanna and Ike are not far behind.
The presidential race is in full gear. In about 60 days it appears we will either elect the first African American president or the first female vice president of the United States. Truly, these are historic times.
