If you’re hungry and you’re thirsty, do you have a lot of patience? When you come to my restaurant and 30 minutes later, I didn’t send you the first tapa, [and you] just start bitching on Yelp or . . . rightfully so. Imagine the same situation, a day, two days, three days later that you don’t have food and you don’t have water. So food is a very good example of the urgency of now. If it’s [an] emergency and you’re supposed to take care of your fellow citizens, fellow Americans, if you’re hungry, you’re hungry today. Your children are hungry today. The elderly are hungry today. The very young kids are hungry today. Any day that passes is one day too late. So, this is a very simple thing to understand in emergencies. The urgency of now is now.
