3. Putting tape over a leak only slows down the inevitable.

If problems can be fixed correctly early on the cost should be less.
What we have now is a need to totally revamp essential services.
The victims of Hurricane Sandy are still without proper shelter and food.
I lived in Staten Island many years ago. It was difficult for me to feel joy as I sat down to a hot Thanksgiving and Christmas meal knowing that 100 miles south of me thousands were suffering.

On this mornings news, I saw that power had been restored to the barrier islands of New Jersey. People are still living without heat and running water. I can't believe help hasn't arrived.

How many deaths will be related to the aftermath of Sandy?
