Engineer says corps delaying drainage work~Consulting engineer Joseph Savoie told the Assumption Parish Police Jury on Wednesday that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has held up a Bayou L’Ourse drainage project for nearly five years.

Editor reqeusts that everyone lift the above ledes on the Exquixotic Corps of Engineers and post/paste them onto your own blogs or otherwise spread them around, even if only in a small link or somet' the aggregated bee thingies will sniff them up on the Web and spread them out even fruther like pollen...ya'know?

For example to counter-aggregate the Corps own PR Spread, starting in the Times Picyune today, regarding levee work in Jeff and St Charles Parrishes. In the face of two major National Reports on Corps Delinquencies yesterday the Picayune offers, what...a quick little spot about a briefing on levee design with no questions asked, replete with a final link to the Corps own website for further propaganda, errrra, information?
Yer eva'so humble editor increasingly fears that Evil Overlords have snuck into the Picayune offices at night and body-snatched their editors to replace them with unfunny android replicants they way they obviously did Rosie, Howard Dean and Brit'nanay.

Altar Eating

Those in the know will soon start looking in the classified section for discreet, only-in-New Orleans ads for St. Joseph’s altars, like the one pictured.
