This is a thinker... I took a government course a long time ago but, there was something the professor said that really resonated with me. "I always tell my students to keep in mind. The United States government was set up to be inefficient." He went on to explain that the efficiency of the British government was what the founding fathers were fleeing from. I would say this is definitely inefficient
I think that this is the result of current governmental malfunction at all levels due to bureaucrat's simply looking for ways to postpone and delay all issues just to simply continue to have reasons to do more studies and consume more time in grade and justify ever burgeoning payrolls.
The issue is further compounded by well intentioned, however sometimes wrong, environmentalist.
Now I'd like to add that I personally have never thought that it was very wise for us to have given the Panama Canal up in the first place.
Just what peanut brained clown came up with that thought?
Must have been some bumbling bureaucrat or politician.
Furthermore ever increasing sizes of oceangoing freighters and tankers only serve to reward the ultra rich as in owners of shipping lines.
I'd just as soon see four shiploads of trinkets from China unloaded at Port Savannah as to see a single monster of a ship risk the dangerous journey from Tybee to the ports terminals inland of Savannah's beautiful riverstreet.
It's a matter of time until some mechanical malfunction or human error sends one of those monsters crashing into the bridge or the structures along the riverside.
Also if we continue to deepen channels of rivers as well as drainage canals which make their way to the oceans ultimately we continue to increase the risk of damaging both our fresh water supply as well as damaging the water of the ocean.
Mr Webmaster thank you for provoking all of us to think.
We need a little more of that on this site.
sebe, now that you mention it, I believe both more provoking and more thinking would improve this site.
And less personal attacks.
Dr Carson said in his now famous speech that "When Liberals have nothing meaningful to say they simply attack".
Jack Kingston had a column in yesterday's (Tuesday 3-11) Savannah Morning News about the harbor dredging project.
It is worth reading.
