"I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority."
-- E. B. White, US author & humorist (1899 - 1985)
Is there a lesson to be learned in the aftermath of Katrina?
As we have all known for so long, it is better to spend the money to be prepared than to have this sort of disaster strike. Its the law that you must have car insurance to drive, altho many of us never actually use the insurance. Why wouldnt our law makers find it necessary to be prepared in these instances rather than have to deal with the sort of situation we have now, which is not only deadly, but extremely more costly. Maybe our politicians will stop blowing money on the things that dont matter (like bridges to nowhere in Alaska that will serve approx. 50 people) and start focusing on the important things.
