Tornado in clouds near Jacksonville, Alabama 04-10-09

This is not the best or most viral local tornado video footage to be sure. It is, however, a very good reminder that tornado season approaches once again.

The Blaze reports that the U.S. has cut a deal with a Saudi wheel to send a top suspect in the Boston bombing case back home. Shades of 911! Recall how Saudis of interest were emergency evacuated back then. It happened then and may be happening now.
