Yin & Yang

On the way to work this morning I saw three little bambi babies playing with their mommas.

On NPR I heard a guy on a Montana call-in show actually say we should bill the people of New Orleans who didn't evacuate. Yes, bill them for their rescue because they should have evacuated. Um, how? Ok, wait, I need to take a deep cleansing breath and just NOT GO THERE.

There is is people. The yin and yang of living here. How do you keep the balance?

I wonder how they'd expect to collect when those people have most likely lost everything?

On the other hand, I'll bet your husband has seen many fire victims who refuse to leave their properties only to change their minds at an inopportune time, risking the firefighter's lives.

Yep, Yin and Yang...

The problem I have (among many) revolves around these people who are saying we should "bill the victims" and are the SAME ONES who say, "I'm staying in my house. I don't care if there is a fire. You can't make me leave." And there they are, with their garden hose, being made a hero by the media, while my husband risks his ass to save them. I don't appreciate it. And I don't understand why they can't grasp the irony.
