Remember this? We'd had Katrina, and the clusterf*ck that followed. This is back in 2005, of course. Now, Hurricane Rita was coming, and the authorities were trying to get evacuation plans out to the people of the Gulf coast, to get folks out of harm's way. General Russel Honore was in charge. He held a press conference to help get the word out. The reporters were amped up to ask him why this and that hadn't been done during Katrina. The general struggled to keep the press focused on the current events--he did not want them trying to get him to do a post mortem on the Katrina situation at this news conference. "Let' s not get stuck on the last storm." and then the immortal "You are stuck on stupid."
Why does it seem so appropriate for the oil spill situation? Why do we get "stuck on stupid" over and over again?

What's this blog like?
Well, this blog is like...sitting around the kitchen table with friends and family...like a game of Rook with friends...sitting on the porch or deck or driveway with friends and neighbors...come on grab a drink and have a seat! You're in Ruskin Heights, or Terrace Lake Gardens or Stratford Estates for example. We might talk about anything--the new people moving in down the street, the economy, the Chiefs, crime, the mayor, health care, national new, world news, religion, cars, politics...careful now! Wide ranging, opinionated, but always respectful. In the end, we are all neighbors.
