My Town

OK, so I’ve never shown any hesitation to discuss my ambivalence about living in Cedar Rapids, or Iowa in general. But I have to say that this truly breaks my heart:

This town has been really struggling financially and this could well break its back. It’s also really frustrating to be able to do nothing. Sure, I can sandbag with the best of them, but it seems to have done nothing. I would go help with sandbagging in Iowa City–which is due to be hit even worse next week with the entire University under the gun–but I can’t even get there now. Highways are closed down, bridges under water. This stuff hits you right in the heart, and I wish there was something we could do besides wait mother nature out.
