The Campaign For DA


A Long Read For Upcoming Long Weekend

A faithful reader suggested this story, and D Magazine is promoting it even though it is in Texas Monthly. It's the incredible story about the flooding of the Blanco River in Wimberly last year over the Memorial Day weekend. For one family on a long weekend vacation, it was the ultimate tragedy. Here's the story.

My son and I were fortunate enough to go to Wimberley and help with relief efforts. The devastation was incomprehensible.

As a parent, reading what happened in that vacation house ripped my guts out. Such tragedy is beyond my comprehension.

What I got out of the article was that the state needs more money, more access, more data, faster & integrated comms with the federal government so next time we'll be able to announce to people that they're screwed.
