    Uh, they were GIVEN the $$ to upgrade the levies. It was spent elsewhere.

  11. Where did you come up with this?

    The Army Corp of Engineers had repeatedly requested money/time to start
    the work, but no administration had allowed it.

    Although I personally have a problem with being a resident of PA and
    having to pay for levees being built in New Orleans. It's their f'n city,
    and they want to live below sea level, that's their burden.

    Still impressive pictures, sadly, the link does not work anymore. To answer
    my own question, I guess it took almost two days for the water to reach the
    area the photographer was in, does that make sense?

    The levies weren't built to protect the city, they were built to protect
    the river and the rampant materialism that depends on it - including the
    oil burned in PA. But if you don't need all that nasty oil, we'll send
    it back to where it came from.

    I had a chance to view the slide at the above link, and it was well worth
    the visit. Unfortunately, that link is no longer valid. Comes back as
    album not found. Any chance you could find an updated link to the
    slideshow, assuming it's still available for viewing online? I emailed the
    link to a few friends who I thought would appreciate it, and some of them
    didn't get to it in time. Thanks for the heads up on a great viewing
    experience.

    Yes - the flood, as bad as it was, was never as bad as the hysterical, lying
    press painted it as. They showed ONLY the worst areas neglecting to mention
    that much of the city, including the French Quarter and the CBD (Central
    Business District) weren't flooded at all or at worst knee deep....! This in
    no way minimizes the nature of the human trageday, but instead points out
    the failures of the lying media to accurately report the news. New Orleans
    will be "open for business" in The Quarter in about five days - much of the
    city wil be cleaning up, etc., in a couple of weeks. Watch for Mardi Gras to
    go on as usual next February. Americans are, in the main, resilient, not
    helpless fools as portrayed by the media. Americans rebuild and go forward -
    always have, always will, no matter how much Oprah wants to have another
    good cry and whine endlessly.....!

    | Poor upkeep of the levies. We needed to spend the money elsewhere like
    | fighting for cheap oil to fuel all the SUV's....

    Totally untrue. Both levees that failed were "completed projects", i.e.,
    they had already been rebuilt and strengthened. Both levees were under the
    responsibility of the local "Levee Board" for upkeep - a responsibility of
    the City of New Orleans. All evidence indicates that the levees WERE well
    kept. It is interesting to note that the 17th Street levee that failed
    subjected rich white people to flooding - gee, how did THAT happen in racist
    America???

    The aftermath of the storm, i.e., a monumental, specific surge of wind
    driven wave activity from Lake Ponchatrain by Hurricane Katrina, was a
    "Natural Disaster", i.e., "An Act of God". Building a levee doesn't
    guarantee immunity from any and all disasters for all of eternity by virtue
    of published liberal twaddle that says so and suggests that any failure of
    anything for any reason is due to the immutable liberal charge that George
    Bush is the Anti-Christ....!

    "We" are already fully funding the levee improvement projects under the
    aegis of the Army Corps of Engineers - and have been for more than 75 years.
    All other comments to the contrary show an abysmal ignorance of reality, the
    facts and how the process works!

    Nobody in New Orleans suffered because an Ohio housewife bought an
    SUV.....nor did anyone else....utter nonsense.....! Similarly, the tired
    lying canard that "fighting for cheap oil" has anything to do with anything
    is becoming tedious. There is ZERO evidence to support this incredibly silly
    claim....!

    Untrue - the levee projects were, and are, fully funded....always have
    been....the levee funding has never in history been "spent elsewhere". Had
    anyone tried to do that, they'd be living today in Leavenworth - such
    activity is a serious felony....!

    And, the levees that failed were "completed projects" - already upgraded and
    strengthened by our tax dollars....!

    Untrue - all administrations of both parites have fully funded "The Work"
    for more than 75 years, and before....

    Both levees that failed were "completed projects" - already improved and
    strengthened. Acts of God will occur to mess up the plans of any
    bureaucrat....!

    You shouldn't - the Corps of Engineers provides levees and flood control
    dams all the way up the Mississippi to Illinois, all the way up the Missouri
    to Wyoming and all the way up the Ohio River Complex way past Pittsburgh.
    You benefit directly from every dollar the Corps of Engineers spends on
    flood control, etc., of the river complexes that drain more than two thirds
    of the United States.....

    New Orleans is but a tiny part of that system....

    The levees along the river were and are intact - the levees that failed
    allowed Lake Ponchatrain's abnormal storm surges to breach them and flood
    the city.....

    It's not "rampant materialism" to protect legitimate commerce upon which the
    entire country depends....New Orleans is the principal "outfall" port for
    the United States...and one of the most important commercial ports for the
    United States.
