NPR--the Initials Stand for Nothing

~Roy Arrigo: "I had $200 worth of damage to my house from the hurricane—a piece of aluminum blew off—but I lost everything I owned to the levee failure, due to the mistakes of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
There is a big, big struggle among people here to get the word out that this was not a storm or a weather event, this was a manmade disaster.
Since that time, we've seen a lot of work done and everyone says, 'Oh, I feel safer,' but no one has been held accountable or jailed, so why can we trust what they say? Why can we trust their work now?"

I love it...~American Zombie~So as it turns out the Baton Rouge bar fight was over a pool game...awesome. Tell you what I'll do, I'll challenge Cedric Richmond to a pool match...8 ball, race to 7 games, APA rules... if he wins I will take down every blog post I've written about him, if I win he has to give me a one hour interview and answer all of my questions.

Is Slabbed stuck on "Katrina" -vs- "Man-made Disaster" like a gimp on a plumb bob square pants?
