Now na

Complacency is a state of mind that exists only in retrospective
-Valdimir Nabokov
Police to step up security in other malls

Food, evacuations readied for typhoon

Evacuation teams ready for 'Ramil'

Prepare evacuation plan, local execs told

Miriam pushes for National Flood Management Commission

All of which is just fine, except that all these should have been done eons ago.
Why do I get this feeling that most of our tragedies are inevitable outcomes of 'accidents waiting to happen'? The nation is already deeply suffering, but all the more, our future generations will feel the greater brunt of past neglect and complacency.The meaning of the word 'proactive' sorely needs to seep into our nation's consciousness.

As in now and pronto, please.
