This is the only view of water I hope to really have for the next week. So much flooding in central Iowa right now. It's really unbelievable. My best to everyone dealing with the flood waters that just keep closing in. I know the "volunteer spirit" is such a cliche. But it's really cool to see so many people offering to help others in need right now. Despite concerns about our economy and our country, so many people still feel the need to help a neighbor. Iowa really is a cool place.
We're off to Florida for a week for a wedding. The best part, besides seeing my wife's side of the family, is walking the sand on Anna Maria Island. I can't wait.
Perhaps, with my free time, I'll check out a newly updated website. Democrats criticized 4th District Republican Congressman Tom Latham for not saying much about that federal raid of the Agriprocessors meatpacking plant in Postville. But at least he has a new website. Just in time for the fall campaign season. There is now a bit on there about the raid. Happy reading.
