Our Florida Panhandle Tour continues… Last week in the Panhandle, I talked with two men heading back to Ocala, Florida, after spending more than a week helping tornado victims in Alabama. They are part of the Florida Baptist Relief Organization. The men said they spent most of the time sawing trees off of houses in the aftermath of an F-5 force tornado that hit in a small town north of Birmingham. While they were there, they said they heard one amazing story of a 10-year-old boy who, while running for a shelter, was lifted up in the tornado — and dropped 30 miles away (alive and, while unhurt, was a bit “dazed”). The men said they had also helped in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. And what they saw in Alabama was “just as bad.” (Both chose anonymity during the interview because they said their Christian faith calls them to do things in an unsung way.) Note: USA Today reported that yesterday the U.S. Government reached it’s “debt ceiling” at $14.3 trillion. Last night in the motor home, I was helping our Jonathan, 8, with his math. He was doing a series of additions. 14 + 7 = 21; 20 + 8 = 28; 42 + 13 = 55… and so on. Jonathan got them all right — and might well be our new Treasury Secretary when we get to D.C. I mean, all we need is someone who can add right, I once told the Delphos News in Ohio. Then after you’ve added up how much revenue you have, say, in a given year: you don’t spend any more than you’ve got! Common sense.
