24-Hour Dorman: Rushing to the microphones
Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman
You don't need to be a high-paid flood consultant to understand the
significance of Tuesday's news that a $516 million share of federal
disaster recovery bucks Iowa finally broke loose from the D.C. glacier
and is headed for Iowa. With any luck, it means long-awaited home
buyouts and a mountain of other pent-up needs can be addressed soon.
We may actually see some real, tangible progress this summer. Sure,
there are the nagging questions of what took you so long and exactly
when do we get the next shipment, but we'll leave those for now. You
also didn't have to be a high-paid political consultant to understand
the significance of the announcement in political terms.
