LA Can Learn From Fla

Gov. Jeb Bush writes about the successdful response to a disaster such as a hurricane. His article makes a lot of sense. Think Locally On Relief: "Florida learned many lessons from Hurricane Andrew in 1992, and we have continued to improve our response system after each storm. One of the biggest lessons is that local and state governments that fail to prepare are preparing to fail. In Florida, we plan for the worst, hope for the best and expect the unexpected. We understand that critical response components are best administered at the local and state levels."
I hope the national leadership reads this article before they decide that Daddy (read federal) will asume the major responsibility for all of America. This will lead to bankrupting the federal funds while irresponsible communities or states will fail to plan, fail to insure and fail to keep the local infrastructure in good repair.
