CNN Grasps the Obvious Re: New Orleans June 1, 2006Posted by Administrator in Liberal Hypocrisy.
I've babbled about this before.
WHY have we continued to grow New Orleans when it is surrounded by water at least ten feet higher than its base (The notoriously fickle Mississippi River to the north and West, and Lake Pontchartrain to the East)? The question at some point is going to have to be asked: Should New Orleans be restored to its pre-Katrina glory? It smacks a bit too much of government subsidy to me; “Don’t worry about building here; the government will bail you out in the event of a disaster.” (Go here for a great essay on the subject).
Nice to see that CNN has actually caught up with me now.
