A Word About Hurricane Florence & Individual Responsibility
Hurricane's are dangerous. The wind of course is damaging but most of the damage and danger is from massive amounts of water. So when the governors of coastal states warn residents to leave, why don't they? There's always a certain percentage (up to 25%) who elect to stay.
What's wrong with that? Well, first they put themselves at great risk. But in addition to that they put the first responders who are expected to rescue their sorry butts at risk as well.
If I were the governor I'd tell those people if they elect to ignore advice and stay, fine. But don't expect anyone to risk their necks helping them when it hits. They're on their own.
It's time we made irresponsible people step up and be accountable. We do that raising children, right? (Well, most people do anyway).
