A Crisis Every Day


Watching the local (Portland, Oregon) news this AM, and this stands out—Calling the situation with the “homeless” a crisis cheapens the word “Crisis”. When there’s a true crisis, they’ll need to make up a new word, because what they’re calling a crisis now is a government problem that can be addressed quickly and easily by institutionalizing the crazies in the population and arresting much of the rest for the crimes they commit and the arrest warrants already issued for crimes already committed. Those who are left will scatter.

A “Crisis” is when the Russians launch nuclear missiles, or if a 5 mile wide asteroid is on a collision course with the Earth. A bunch of drug addicts, alcoholics, and nut cases living in tents on the sidewalk just doesn’t make the grade.

As usual, you’re welcome.
