I don’t want to get into some discussion of William and what he’s doing over at NiT. In all honesty, I don’t expect anything from NiT any more and what I loved about NiT is now happening over at Music City Bloggers and so it doesn’t hurt my feelings if NiT is just “William Blabs about Shit.” And I would read WBaS. So, there you go. It probably reflects poorly on me, but it’s the truth.
That’s a hella long disclaimer for what just amounts to a “Holy shit, we’re all going to die!”
This is not just a Republican problem, as much as I would like to blame everything on Bush and have him so weighed down under the stress of it that he has to roll everywhere he wants to go because standing is too much of a burden. Problems like this don’t just happen over night. They creep up over years and years and years and this is stuff that we all should have been watching.
Yes, the Corps is responsible, but who oversees the Corps?
Listen, Tennessee, and learn from the continued suffering of our friends and neighbors along the Gulf Coast. In all honesty, we should hope to be treated better, but we should be planning for that. What is our plan if one or the other of these dams fail and outside help is not coming?
How will we aid our fellow Tennesseans? Are we equipped to rescue folks in Carthage? Are we depending on the National Guard? What if they’re all overseas? Can city, county, and state police be mobilized for such a purpose? And, if they’re doing search and rescue, who will be guiding evacuation efforts farther down river?
Can we make a plan or two in the event that no one comes to save us?
