Stop the Accusations. We Need a Different Approach, Now!!
The amount of nonsense on Twitter and Facebook today with regard to Hurricane Maria and Puerto Rico is becoming nonsensical (pun intended). Now, it is being charged that PR didn't have enough warning. Let's review.
My friend, John Morales, has already put together a composite image of the four days of warning for Puerto Rico.
This blog forecast the following the day before it hit: "severe to catastrophic damage."
And, if there was ever a situation that calls for a National Disaster Review Board, this is it.
I recommend donating to a charity other than the Red Cross, offering to go to PR to assist, or doing something constructive. Please stop posting divisive and non-constructive items on social media.
* By having the military overrule civilian authorities, Mr. Trump will be called a "dictator," enemy of democracy, etc.
ADDITION: Here is an example of how bad things are getting in case you have (mercifully) not been online. The NYT's Paul Krugman sticks his foot in it again.
The CDC (hours later) sets things straight.
