Understanding Fingerprints By Jena Griffiths, on September 1st, There are lots of different hypotheses about what fingerprints could mean. And lots of different interpretations of these different theories too. Some medical researchers relate the differences in pattern to chemical conditions in the womb.
It lives beyond truth or lie.
Its reality is independent of time and space. Nick — who loves the English language as a gardener treasures orchids — once presented me with a knit picker. So he is aware of my tendency to occasionally pole vault over mouse turds. Then he wrote something that shined a light on a bias I did not see I had.
Thesis blockquote year ago, I wrote: My dilemma, perhaps a distant cousin to your own, has been in encountering an obdurate, logic-proof insistence by cops, fire fighters, emergency managers, fusion center staff, and DHS minions to define my employer and all critical infrastructure stewards as private sector entities.
It does not matter how much we demonstrate that we are a public agency and a regional extension of government. As far as these people are concerned, we are private, hence unworthy of sensitive information even if Thesis blockquote were the ones to originate it and inherently suspect of being profit driven no matter how many wasteful, feel-good programs we underwrite for some avowed public good.
Even being part of the same retirement system and driving vehicles with tax-exempt license plates — two surefire convincers everywhere else — have no impact in shaking the conviction that we are infrastructure stewards, hence private sector mercenaries.
My unproven suspicion is that much of what is at the bottom of this categorization is a sort of tribal urge to satisfy two unstated objectives: Limit the in-group to an established comfort zone and organizationally and traditionally familiar faces.
Assure that the existing in-group gains and keeps primacy at the trough of grants and other funding destined for public sector actors who are new both to homeland security and critical infrastructure protection.
If there are points to this fugue that resonate with me as an infrastructure steward, they are these: Critical infrastructure is definitely in both public and private hands. Given the types of infrastructure that exist, it is reasonable and credible to accept that they are mainly privately owned and operated.
Even a critical infrastructure operation that is entirely managed by a public agency is going to have some private sector involvement and exposure.
Construction comes to mind.
We are always building or modifying facilities and upgrading systems. Contrary to popular belief, even the wealthiest of public agencies cannot hire everyone they meet. Contractors and subcontractors are as ubiquitous as they are indispensable. The original point of emphasizing private ownership and operation, to the extent I absorbed one, seemed to be as a means of emphasizing that protecting critical infrastructure is a shared responsibility and one that would be imperiled by ignoring private sector stakeholders.
That point still makes sense to me.Responses to “Letter to Jesus” Beatrice Says: March 23rd, at pm. Thank you for your note I have been immensely transformed by your prayers that I have carefully followed especially the New Years Eve Prayer.
