The Corps Finally Admit...

Army Corps Admits Flaws in New Orleans Levees (New York Times)

Corps says gaps, flaws caused levee system failure (Times-Picayune)

It is appalling. It has been known and said by others but not the Corps until now. Because of these "gaps" and "design flaws," lives, property, jobs and businesses were lost, neighborhoods shattered, a weak economy wrecked and topped off by a bad national case of blame the victim. I don't think there's much else to say.

Except that hurricane season started today.

Dear G Bitch,
Check out the song lyric at http://www.mikewest.net/songs/home/engineers.html
The author, Mike, lost his house in the 9th.

I say (kinda paraphrasing J.B.) "Come friendly storms, fall on Washington, D.C.!"

Keep up the good work. I'm a fan.
