Putting A Different Spin On Things….
When I’ve watched the T.V. news coverage of tornadoes that have smashed the living crap out of many small towns in the central part of the United States, I’ve noticed that almost to a one, when interviewed many survivors crawling out of a bathtub will say that “God saved us” or “God spared us”.
What I’ve also noticed is that those that were crushed under a bathtub and didn’t survive that gentle touch from the hand of god have said, eh….. well, not so much.
You might notice that many of those areas that show the highest incidence of damage from the tornadoes are indicated on the map by sort of a reddish color. Perhaps it might be a coincidence, but most of them (i.e., Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Arkansas, Indiana, etc….) are also described as “Red States”, because they tend to vote for republicans. Is it true or false that payback is a bitch? I’ll just call them as fair and balanced as I see them, then you decide….
Full Disclosure: Because I have an ex-wife living in the ex-house she “acquired” in Greenfield, Indiana, I watch the storm news with mixed feelings, truth be told I hope that if a house is going to drop on some
bitch witch, well……...
