  1. The author is exactly right. The problem really stems from bureaucratic regulations and policies that are established for normal conditions, that can be made to work for high-stress events with larger “time constants,” but that don’t work when time is short. In this case, the lack of a plan meant that Surfside didn’t act in a timely manner. The NYT took a cheap shot at DeSantis – he did what he had to do as quickly as possible. Over the years, the state has tried to push cities and counties to do more planning but they have resisted. We can only hope that this pulls more away from the Dark Side to form enlightened plans.
