Levee-fill debris includes shopping cart, water heater ~Paul Rioux
~Levee board member Paul Dauphin said the alleged attempt to “bulldoze the evidence” raises doubts about the Tiger Team’s independence. “I think they’re going to minimize everything and say that this levee is technically sound and safe or whatever,” he said. “But we’ve got to look at this with our common sense, with our gut and with our concern for residents who live here and ask, ‘Do I want to live behind a levee that has shopping carts, tires, hubcaps and firewood in it?’”

~Editilla Notellas~ We had to repost this fine piece since the Crime Cameras are all The Rage these days. Yet, this blogger not only nailed that plank here early, he walked the perps Spanish down the hall and into Lake Pontchartrain on it. I enjoy reading his posts more than twice because A: they are filled with incredibly entertaining morsels of data-packed flavor, and, B: he weaves such copiously packed data-morsels so thickly that it's like reading Slabbed while on LSD-52.
