For a very long time now I have been keenly observing and speaking about the events of the year, month, week and day, particularly those swirling about the government operations at all levels. As each tidbit arises I inevitably nod my head and mutter, "Yep. As expected", because almost everything we see is predictable.Yes, I know. What a towering cynical outlook.

Thousands of lives lost. Homes destroyed. A way of life severely impacted by…Continue
