Watchful...gotitlongago, didn't you find this a little refreshing?
I sure did. Let me clarify that.
I find it refreshing that FINALLY, a concise compilation of potential problems with disclosure about fixes in progress or scraping of things they can't or won't fix, is being presented without all the major happy happy chant.
See, being told "everything is okay" during this crisis without giving details of what is being fixed and what problems they have incurred up through now is like being in a really severe car accident and having the Rescue Dudes standing over you about to cry, telling you everthing will be alright.
This is the way to approach the "self-reporting" that would help folks believe that they are doing what they can, and we're not being taken for fools. We hate it when government thinks we're stupid enough to lie to.
***thinking this is a good step forward in reporting status, but the status still stinks***

I just want to say thanks to all of you who take the time to link information. I really appreciate it and by you linking it, it gives everyone an opportunity to search out information in seconds.
