Seriously... All the best!
As bad as we might think we are, we are nothing but an itch on Mother Nature's back. When she needs it scratched, the results are devastating.
I heard an interesting opinion on NPR the other day. The speaker brought up the notion that most of Europe was rebuilt in a couple of years after WW II. Sure, Blixa went on to remind us that new buildings collapse, but 2 years after Katrina many parts in NOLA are still in dire need of help. Would any NOLA Goners shed some light on this?
This is absolutely fucking terrible. W's paying (his boy Cheney's) Haliburton to do nothing in Iraq, yet we still can piece one of our national treasures back together. I don't believe Haliburton is doing anything by the way. If construction on a hospital, school, or even a pay toilet was completed, there would a constant tape loop of the ribbon cutting ceremony on CNN.
