View on storm season depends on your seat

There's no better example of how people can get too swept up in their own view of the world than the recent quote from Phil Klotzbach, lead author of Colorado State University's annual hurricane forecast.

As quoted in the Sept. 26 front-page story, Klotzbach states, "This (hurricane) season looks to be a huge bust."

Really. As a Lowcountry resident, I think this season has been great. After I stopped laughing, I realized that the only good news is that Klotzbach is not in government. Unfortunately, there are many more like him who are.
