6 feet of water in the streets of evangeline


david brinkley "reckless abandonment"
...the answer to new orleans's levee woes is painfully obvious: money and willpower. common sense dictates that the endangered areas -- if repopulated (and that is a big if) -- demand levees that can sustain category 5 storms. it's a national obligation. entire blocks are moldering away while the federal government lifts only a cursory hand to reverse the desultory trend.

unfortunately, one of the biggest misperceptions the american public harbors is that katrina was a week-long catastrophe. in truth, it's better to view it as an era. remember, the dust bowl of the 1930s lasted eight or nine years. we're still in the middle of the katrina saga. - washington post

stop by some fellow bloggers in the gulf region. tell them we remember..
