let's talk politics
well Irene was a bust.. at least for us down in Brooklyn.. can't say the same for Vermont (Buy a sweet t-shirt and help with the clean up efforts!) and much of eastern NY. It has caused plenty of uproar amongst congressmen and residents of the states, citing the need for faster clean up efforts to get the northeast back on its feet. This podcast from The Brian Lehrer Show brings the debate center stage and depending on which representative is speaking you'll hear a variety of ideas about how this clean up and the economic situation should be handled... the second segment touches on insurance companies and how they handle natural disasters via risk assessment - give it a listen, it's actually awesome.. and the quote from Brendan Greeley in around the 7:35 mark is top notch and spot on. Enjoy loves.
