The latest on Hurricane Isaac (via the AP):

"A Category 1 hurricane with winds at 80 mph, Isaac came ashore at 6:45 p.m. CDT near the mouth of the Mississippi River in southeastern Louisiana, drenching a sparsely populated neck of land that stretches into the Gulf of Mexico. But the worst was still to come as the slow-moving storm zeroed in on New Orleans, roughly 75 miles to the northwest."
