Forty percent of Ruston had been without power because of an ice storm. The city’s checkbooks and accounts had not been balanced in seven months. The employee insurance program owed the general fund close to $1.5 million and Louisiana’s Department of Environmental Quality was threatening to impose heavy fines on the city because of sewer code issues dating back to 1984.

Sometimes I hate statistics. 
A friend was in a wreck not long ago; there were serious injuries. Had he considered some “minor” points there would have been no wreck. There was no alcohol involvement, but he was not alert. He asked me to share his story. He is now more focused.
