"Often, when the King can do no wrong, his subjects suffer the consequences. Such is the case here. This story -- 50 years in the making -- is heart-wrenching. Millions of dollars were squandered in building a levee system with respect to these outfall canals which was known to be inadequate by the corps' own calculations."
I'm sure the Corps feels just awful because of these scathing comments. Not bad enough to suspend or fire anyone, but sort of the shake your head up and down and promise to do better kind of feeling awful. Anyway, I need to put this behind me and get ready for the Muses parade tonight. And if you know anyone with an extra $100,000 laying around, send it my way.
Update: Muses and the other parades cancelled due to the massive thunder storms moving in, so we'll be at home watching the season premiere of Lost.
