Herhold: On San Jose flood, point fingers

Published Monday March 6

Without highlighting failure, we can’t learn from our mistakes

At a news conference a few days after San Jose’s disastrous Feb. 21 flood, San Jose Mayor Samuel Liccardo took responsibility for the failure to properly notify victims.

“This happened in my city,’’ commented Liccardo, calling for an end to the “bureaucratic finger-pointing.’’ “I am responsible.’’

Few people I know believe Liccardo is fully responsible for the failure. I’d be surprised if the mayor himself believes it. The hrs. before the flood offer plenty of blame to go around.

Without finger-pointing, we can’t learn from our mistakes. Without finger-pointing, we shield incompetence. Without finger-pointing, we rarely change.
