2011: New hurricane protection system is built ~Comment from Sandy Rosenthal: We are pleased that this article used no "Katrina shorthand" and attributed the catastrophic flooding of regional New Orleans to the failure of the hurricane protection system that Congress ordered the Corps of Engineers to build in 1965. We are also pleased that the article includes no "yeah buts." In other words, the article does not include unsupported statements by senior corps officials in 2006 and 2007 that blame should go to the victims of the flooding. We have addressed this "blame the victim' strategy in a recent blog post on Nola.com.
