I'm an ordained United Methodist minister no longer pastoring churches, a former media producer with skills ten years out of date, a writer trying to sell my first novel, and a sales associate keeping body and soul together working for the People's Republic of Corporate America. I'm married to the most wonderful woman in the world, who was my best friend for 17 years before we married.

On Common Sense

I just saw a great post on today's DailyKos concerning the aftermath of the Katrina disaster.

You know who has the most experience in the world in dealing with below-sea-level land and protecting same? The Netherlands, of course.

So in today's DailyKos, they tell about the chief Dutch engineer who has great ideas about how to rebuild, manage, and control the land situation in New Orleans. He says they can work out a plan in about three weeks.

Instead, the Army Corps of Engineers plans to spend a billion dollars and a year of study working out something that we all know won't be as good a plan as the Dutch could give us from their experience.

I have always been critical of the C of E ever since I was old enough to see their mistakes. They're about to make another big one.
