Maria Montez, promo shot for “The Caribbean Cyclone”, 1945

My thoughts are with the people of the Eastern Caribbean this week as they face down what is being called one of the top 5 strongest hurricanes in recorded history. Behind the glitz and glamour of the resorts many people live in small homes with tin roofs that can blow off easily. And many jobs could be wiped out if tourist and support industries as well as agriculture are destroyed.
