A Little Understanding, Please…

Aside from the very slight chances of a hurricane and a flood occurring coincidentally, planners had to identify and assign personnel according to their skills. It must be remembered:
–Every hurricane or flood is different. Some call for public-safety skills, boats and sandbagging, while others require clockmakers and paleontologists.
–The records had to be, by definition, antediluvian. [Def: “Bible. Occurring or belonging to the era before the Flood.”]
–Hence, they were written in cuneiform. [Def: “Characters formed by the arrangement of small wedge-shaped elements, used in ancient Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian, Babylonian, and Persian.”] Many of our cuneiform translators are currently on assignment overseas.
–Finally, we know from President Bush’s own case, the Guard keeps its records in unmarked cartons, distributed at random locations throughout the country
