Our tax dollars at work! Socialism at it’s best!!! 

2 items of note:

Who would have ever thought Fracking could be harming our world… 

50% of cases are released by just 10% of sources. 

The above reminds me of the 80/20 rule so useful for helping to determine success. 

When we, as a collection of individuals decide to embark on infrastructure projects such as air, and water pollution, repairs of roads, bridges, habitat this rule makes clear tremendous amounts of progress can be made, because the largest portion of the work can be done with the lesser of money and labor. 

It is that last 20% which adds the greater portion of money and resources to projects as well as adding large amounts of daunt and overwhelming-ness. 

As we look at infrastructure, the answer to the above rule is quite simple. Don’t let the perfect get in the way of the good. 

After all we’re only human. And few would disagree, perfection is a worthy outcome to strive for, but, like moving something at the speed of light, which if possible would take ALL the energy in the universe, we can never and should not even actually attempt finishing that persnickety 20%.

If that’s the scenario,  is not the attempt, but accomplishing the 80%, shouldn’t the accrued benefits  to ALL be worthy enough to gather together and complete?

Sounds as though mother has an indigestion issue. Looking at other clusters of earthquakes over time and place would be interesting. I can’t imagine it hadn’t been done yet.

Garrison Keillor, a singular man of letters we as citizens were blessed to know. In this time of rampant change and lose footing, he was able, using only his voice, to take us back to a time that seems far away and yet resources where it matters, in our hearts and minds. If you ever saw him tell his stories it seemed as though he was transfixed, a conduit of memory and love sorely lacking in our time.
