One can only wonder if a plague of locusts is far behind. This has been what some might call a biblical year out here in the Midwest. January began with lingering heavy and persistent snows, followed by an earthquake, deadly tornado activity, and severe June flooding. Reports by the national media have made it sound like we Iowans are chest-deep in water, which isn't exactly the case. For most, the rain and flooding have been nothing more than a nuisance, washing out driveways, closing roads and bridges, etc. Getting from here to there has become more complicated.

OAKMONT, Pa. - - Since World War II, only four men have won the Masters and the U.S. Open in the same year - Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Ben Hogan. This week, Zach Johnson will try to add his name to that list. To get an idea of how silly that would've sounded not long ago, you've just got to talk with Jamie Bermel. He's the guy who recruited Johnson to the golf team at Drake University. He's the guy who knew that not only was Johnson not the best golfer on his college team, but he also wasn't even the best on his high school team.

FORT MADISON, Iowa - If roads, rivers and railroad tracks are the arteries of commerce, then the flooding in Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin add up to a heart attack to the nation's midsection. The closure of bridges along a 300-mile stretch of the Mississippi River yesterday was just the latest blow in a weeklong run of road closures, bridge shutdowns, levee breaks and washouts that are scrambling traffic, disrupting distribution plans, forcing businesses to close operations and hurting the farm economy.

I was not particularly alarmed when I received word of the assault with the frozen kangaroo tails. Perhaps you read about this. Here is the Associated Press report, which was sent to me by many alert readers:"ALICE SPRINGS, Australia -- Aborigines attacked three policemen with frozen kangaroo tails bought at a local store. . . . A police spokesman said the kangaroo tails won't be introduced as evidence because they were eaten by the aborigines after the alleged attack."As I say, this report did not alarm me. "Sounds like a routine assault with frozen kangaroo tails that were later eaten by the alleged assailants, or, in standard police-radio code, a 10-398," I recall saying to myself.
