Good Enough!

A blog about "good enough" things - for those who don't need, can't afford, or don't care about the "very best".

"good enough" disaster response?

Yes, I'm in Florida but no, I wasn't in the area affected by Hurricane Charley. You can find plenty of other reports of damage, suffering, and the like. What I want to mention is the disaster response. Since Hurricane Andrew hit south of Miami, the various responding agencies from federal down to local, have done a lot more planning and learning, and it is evident in how they have responded to this disaster. They were there quickly, and were very prepared. They can't, of course, foresee everything, nor can they be everywhere to handle every issue, or to be on top of every dumb yahoo that wants to drive into a disaster zone and get in the way.

To so many, who are hurting, the response will never seem "good enough", but in fact it has been really good in an objective sense.
