~Editilla Moves Onward~ It is time we all moved on from calling this Katrina to calling it by its true name: The Anniversary of The Federal Flood, the Corps' Flood or, as levees.org aptly and strongly continues to label it, The 5th Anniversary of the Worst Civil Engineering Disaster in US History.
It was NOT Katrina that crucified New Orleans 8.29.05.
It was Engineering Failure by the US Army Corps of Engineers.
Even as the Louisiana State Museum prepares to enshrine this catastrophe as Katrina, help us out here to keep the focus on what really happened and why.
For now I'll settle for just: The Flood of 8/29.
