Matthew, the hurricane, is hitting the Bahamas and bearing down on the eastern shores of Florida Georgia, and even South Carolina. While damage inland will be significant, the barrier islands are toast. As Marshall Shepherd wrote

but Matt DRUDGE thinks it is an evil plan of President Obama to scare folk about climate changeWe can rebuild homes. We can rebuild businesses. We cannot rebuild your life. #HurricaneMatthew— Rick Scott (@FLGovScott) October 6, 2016
and his fans, well his fans vote, and they vote for the strangest thingsThe deplorables are starting to wonder if govt has been lying to them about Hurricane Matthew intensity to make exaggerated point on climate— MATT DRUDGE (@DRUDGE) October 6, 2016
But Eli has a question. If freedom of speech does not extend to yelling fire in a crowded theatre, what are the rules for tweeting don't evacuate from a low lying beach on a barrier island. Should Matthew make landfall in Florida, it would be interesting to see how the family of victims pile on to Drudge and Co.
