This is the Statt Mann Baby. It's time to Scatt a little bit.

I don’t want to pile on the officials in Kentucky where they hosted a NASCAR race and did very little to prepare for the one hundred thousand plus fans who were certain to show up.

Maybe it’s not clear in Kentucky that NASCAR is popular and people will stand in line to see the races. Or maybe that’s what they depended on because that’s what they certainly got, lots of long lines everywhere.

Infrastructure is a major problem in America. It’s not just in Kentucky. The greed of a profit without the expense of investment has become the mantra of American business.

And it’ll be that until we find a way to expend thinning resources on bridges and by-ways instead of bombs and bullets.

It’s just sad that American business takes so little regard for its customers. We’ve sent so much customer service to India and the Philippines that we’ve forgotten how to take care of the people who actually fork over the money here in the U.S.

Maybe the roads they’re building in Mumbai and Manila could be lent to places like Louisville and Lexington when they need to use them. We’re paying for those roads, seems right that we could access them once in a while.

I’ll call someone on that. Maybe there’ll be a menu option. I’ll listen carefully this time. Maybe the options have changed to make my life easier.  Certainly I have more time now. The lines aren’t getting any shorter.
