The interesting thing politically is the play between short term and long term interests. Choosing a strategy to handle the problem of getting through the wretched hurricane season without compromising the long term health of the beach and community. In my experience situations like this always really suck, because people seize on the immediate crisis to obtain things that really in the long term scheme of things were bad, and the pressures of the immediate crisis cause people to throw the big picture out and cave in. And yet if you think only long term you don't see immediate problem. I wish it were October.
