  2. Are they more concerned now? Didn’t Hurricane Katrina or the tsunami-in-your-living-room effect of those YouTube videos after the disaster in northern Japan teach us anything about the potential destructiveness of natural disasters? (On YouTube’s search results for “Irene,” the hurricane has surpassed Irene Cara performing “What a Feeling,” but TobyMac, the Christian Eminem, is still holding down the top spot with his song “Irene.”) Will New Yorkers actually follow Mayor Bloomberg’s advice and prepare? Buy new batteries, canned food, extra water, duct tape; pack a “go bag” and leave it by the door?
