Irene has also ruined the plansto dedicate the Martin Luther King Memorial and will likely cause many sports events and concerts to be postponed as well.  If youre in DC, Dont Panic.  Were likely only going to get tropical storm-force winds and rain.  And if youre with Pepco, you’re going to lose power.  Yet, its not the end of the world, and will likely be less jarring than the East Coast Quake.  Just mind the chainsaw-wielding Metro bus drivers.
