Hurricane Stan has come and (almost) gone, with hardly a peep of media concern. No CNN or Fox News or MSNBC talent getting blown around the beaches along the Gulf of Mexico (OK, I admit I haven’t been watching any of the above since Hurricane Rita). That’s probably because Stan isn’t threatening any U.S. life or property: The storm has gone ashore in Mexico. That’s bad news for people there — “LIFE-THREATENING FLASH FLOODS AND MUD-SLIDES ARE VERY LIKELY,” the National Hurricane Center says in all-caps urgency” — but, without an NFL game to cover, that’s hardly a reason to send a TV crew.
Next up on this season’s Atlantic hurricane roster: Tammy. Bring it on.
