    Des Moines and Polk County flood...

    I usually rag on how the county is run and how tax dollars are wasted but I have to say my hats off to Des Moines, Polk County and the State of Iowa. No matter what has been thrown at these people, they have a plan in place. Iowa by its nature and size just does not have a lot of resources, but emergency teams are responding to flooding and tornadoes all over the state. While I pray for the victims and their families I still want to say a great job to all those coordinating rescue efforts, volunteers and weather individuals for what they have done for this state. I really think we have a model here the rest of the country should follow!

    If more levees fail you will probably change your tune.

    However, nobody can do anything to prevent that from happening. Overall the response has been good... But really, for everyone but Cedar Rapids at this point it is just luck.
