Sometimes Mother Nature just takes the upper hand, and puts us in our place. I was reading about Hurricane Ike, currently a Category 4 hurricane.

I don't wish ill to the planet or people, but I must admit, there is a part of me that hopes they evacuate Guantanamo Prison safely, and Mother Nature cleansed the planet of this horrible place ~ Close the book on this remote prison. Is it wrong for me to wish Nature would do what humans have failed to do?
