Hurricane Harvey



https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/25/us/hurricane-harvey-texas.html

This storm has the very trying feature of being prolonged, expected to dump loads of rain over an extended period.:(

The mayor of Rockport asked people who would not evacuate to write their name and Social Security number on their arms in ink, so that their bodies could be identified.

Apparently this mayor is not at all familiar with putrefaction in the interval a body might experience before being recovered. But he's a mayor, and as a politician knowing of whence they speak is not a prerequisite; nor coming up with a solution to a problem that's bound to work the first time around--the throw money ad infinitum at a problem cast of politicians.

I presume he's a Republican; a Democrat would have set up a distribution center for indelible ink Sharpie's so his/her constituents could comply with said directive in a color of their choice. And not to mention that persons of color could opt to choose a color that would maximize visibility. Just Saying!!!

My friend who survived 9/11 in the Pentagon now lives in Houston. I tried to contact her through social media yesterday but no reply yet.
