Another Take On Disaster – Nashville, TN

Heard much about the disastrous flooding in Nashville – one of, if not the worst non-hurricane natural disasters in US history? I noticed with dismay that within a few days after the BP oil rig blew up in the Gulf of Mexico, some folks down that way were already hollering that the government isn’t moving fast enough, doing enough to help. That’s one way to get media attention. Scream. Cry. Pout. Stamp your feet. Be a victim – especially be a victim.

Nashville was different. Didn’t get much media play. Wanna know why – at least on one Nashvillian’s opinion? Check out this youtube video, or for the more literate types, you can read about it here.
