what happens when the bear overcomes the urge to hibernate

So social media is funny, and one of the fun bits is interacting with ‘celebrities’ and, in the process, finding out if they are a***holes. So in that spirit, I give you my brief exchange over the past 24 hours with Jeri Ryan (yes, that Seven-of-Nine Jeri Ryan) on Twitter, and its consequences… Spoiler: Ms. Ryan is not only not an a**hole, but seems quite nice.

I’ve been following Puerto Rico recovery efforts closely, especially the work of the US Army Corps of Engineers on their ‘Emergency Power Mission’. They have been extremely transparent in publishing detailed information on their work, but I’ve been baffled that all their activity seemed focused on generators / temporary fixes — I could see no progress really being made on power restoration of the actual grid in Puerto Rico. Was that work just being tracked on some other map I wasn’t aware of or they weren’t pubilcizing? Nope. But now I now why I wasn’t seeing it – it didn’t exist. This is a clusterf*** of epic proportions, and I guarantee it has directly led to increased misery up to and including American citizens in Puerto Rico dying who didn’t have to. I hope there is hell to pay when the dust settles.
