If you see the normal type of "dire emergencies" this state has had in the past 20 years, beginning with the flood of '93, you might begin to understand the tendenc...

Simon, I hate to bust your bubble, but Farragut had big brass ones that clanked when he walked. He was tied to the top of his ship's mainmast when he yelled it down to the helmsman, heading straight up the channel in Mobile Bay, right towards a moored mine (in those days, those were called 'torpedoe...

Of course I could drone on and on about the lack of underground grids here, and how some areas get mashed when ice storms hit.
