Interesting times. A tsunami thankfully doesn't flood our island home (The Maui News, Oct. 28), and I hear people gripe that heads should roll for convincing them that it might.
The most devastating storm in memory rocks the entire Eastern seaboard, and people who ignored warnings to evacuate are described less than a week later as losing patience because they are having a hard time getting gas, power and normalcy back.
Most people aren't so clueless, I get that, but why do the idiots get all the headlines?
Brian Kilmeade on "Fox and Friends" goes ballistic when "they" can't get power and gas back to 60 million affected people in a couple of days. Of course, the "they" at the receiving end of his rant are the same feds he complains about paying taxes to 365 nondisaster-filled days a year.
Federal Emergency Management Agency? Get rid of the worthless bums. But God help them if they're not at my door when I need them.
If you believe the federal government shouldn't ask for your money, fine. But then please don't be the loudest voice asking for them to rescue you when things go south. And please, when all is said and done and the infrastructure is rebuilt, please remember you didn't build that. We all did.
