The news from where I grew up... not good. For starters, the levees are endangered down in Presidio, on the Rio Grande. On top of that, a plane that was surveying the levees crashed, its four occupants feared dead.

I knew one of them. When I lived in Marfa, Jake Brisbin ran the cable TV company. Since then he's gotten himself elected Marfa mayor and Presidio County judge, and now directs the Rio Grande Council of Governments — in which capacity he was on that plane.

Some prayers and GoodThoughts for the plane, and for the people of Presidio, would not be amiss...
