I'm sitting at home this evening watching simultaneous coverage of the Republican National Convention and Hurricane Isaac. Within the last few minutes, Isaac officially made landfall in Louisiana.

As of right now, the excitement level from the two stories is about the same. Isaac has been moving at a slow pace for days and the Republican National Convention is moving along at about the same pace. However, something did peak my interest a few minutes ago. As Isaac moves on shore, the news media is (as usual), acting like they're surprised people are staying behind to ride the storm out. Which got me to thinking, would I stay behind and ride a hurricane out to protect my property?

I think my answer would be yes, after I got my family out of there anyway. What do you think you would do? Take the poll and post your comments below!
