With all the problems, itís still a wonderful world

As the Mighty Mississippi rolls through southeast Louisiana, it is gratifying to see that what could have been may not happen. In other words, we wonít be up to our ear lobes in water overflowing into our neighborhoods.

Even in south central Louisiana where much of the overflow was expected, things donít look too bad.


Though the world was supposed to come to an end Sunday, it didnít happen. And it appears that Louisiana will suffer some from its local dilemma but, after all, we are used to that.


Katrina, BP oil spill and hurricane after hurricane have taught us a few lessons on how to survive catastrophes that seem to be growing in numbers.


Terrible earthquakes and tornadoes have shaken up other parts of the globe in recent months. So, weíre not alone.


Hopefully, our threatening river will take it easy as the melted snow and ice and heavy rainfalls up north flow out to sea. And we will be able to settle down in time to face the new hurricane season starting next week which is expected to be quite active.


The world is not a perfect place as we have discovered. But it is still a wonderful place to live and try to solve the problems that evolve when the environment does not behave.
So keep up your spirit, folks, and live to the fullest through it all.
