The Rogue Speaks:
I am such an idiot! I spent all evening writing my "L" post and then realized that this is a "K" week! Sooooo, I am publishing a post that I wrote in January. I have a lot on my plate this week and next, so you are just going to bear with me, and accept this re-do. If you have already read it and commented, please do not think that you have to comment again. I am just taking up space here to CMA until next week's "L" post. Thanks, blogging pals!!
It's kinda sad that after major incidents that cripple cities and put lives at risk, the
heads of state and local governments think that saying, "I take full responsibility," or "I'm sorry that this happened on my watch," will make everything o.k., at least until
the next time it happens. In 2010, a major winter storm crippled Atlanta. It was a complete and total mess! After the fact, the people in charge apologized, saying that they had learned a great deal during that event, and measures had been put in place so that it would never happen again. Oh, really???? What happened to all those "measures?" Did the dog eat their homework?????
It's kinda scary that a politician would threaten to throw someone over a banister a couple of stories down onto a marble floor, and then say, " Sorry! We'll do lunch soon." Does lunch make it o.k.? Nooooo, I don't think so. Frankly, I wouldn't be caught dead having lunch with someone like that!!! Really!!!!
What is wrong with people these days!!!!!! They seem to think they can say and do (or NOT do) whatever they want to, and apologizing on national television makes everything o.k. Well, at least until the next time it happens. If those politicians were people for whom I had voted to represent me, I can tell you now, they would never get my vote again. I expect leaders to set a good example, and lately that just hasn't happened.
I'm kinda mad, so rather than risk saying something for which I would have to apologize on national blogland, I suggest that you head on over to Jenny's and read some nice, friendly posts for Alphabe-Thursday!
