I admit it, I am a quote geek.

"The heights by great men reached and kept
Were not attained by sudden flight;
But they, while their companions slept,
Were toiling upward in the night."

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

If that is official guidance for bureaucrats, it sounds pretty tame.

My opinion is that any sufficiently large disaster will have power hungry psychopaths jumping in with oratory and arguments explaining why they should be the king. I would probably be one of the first on a soapbox arguing that we DO NOT need a king to run things; we just have to be ready and willing to cooperate, work, and trade so that everyone survives.

I found this online. It's a guide for local government agencies on dealing with a possible EMP event.

What do you think? Is it accurate?

A few I will share with the 17 year old granddaughter we have taken in:

The time is always right to do what is right.
Martin Luther King Jr.

Half of life is luck; the other half is discipline - and that’s the important half, for without discipline you wouldn’t know what to do with luck.
Carl Zuckmeyer

The successful person has the habit of doing the things failures don't like to do. They don't like doing them either necessarily. But their disliking is subordinated to the strength of their purpose.
E.M. Gray

 Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishments.
Jim Rohn

First we form habits, then they form us. Conquer your bad habits or they will conquer you.
Rob Gilbert

The first and the best victory is to conquer self.
Plato

He who lives without discipline dies without honor.
Icelandic Proverb

Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves; they therefore remain bound. The man who does not shrink from self-crucifixion can never fail to accomplish the object upon which his heart is set. This is true of earthly as of heavenly things. Even the man whose object is to acquire wealth must be prepared to make great personal sacrifices before he can accomplish his object; and how much more so he who would realize a strong and well-poised life.
James Allen

If thou thinkest twice before thou speakest once, thou wilt speak twice the better for it.
William Penn

We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit on a hot stove lid again and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.
Mark Twain

A neighbor has a bunch of .40 caliber ammo she wants to sell. I can get additional details (quantity, desired price, brand, bullet style and weight) in the next day or so.
Location is Riverton area.
