New Orleans still susceptible to Katrina-like damage spin cycle
~Editilla notellas~as this article circulates the country its title is usually, by the googol:
"New Orleans Repeating Deadly Levee Mistakes"
We do not have to imagine da'uptic or da'intake of how quickly the ubber'trolls feed
on such galling non-sequiturial meme'ethic myth'nomer.
As Gentle'rillas have drawn, quartered and tasted enough neocoward punk'bile over nailing the perps who flooded New Orleans we say
beg to counter spin this latest cycle of dirty white'wash. Geld this One Trick Pony at birth.

New Orleans is Recovering from Deadly Mistakes.
The Exquixotic Corps is Repeating Deadly Mistakes.

At the risk of surpassing even Editilla's Insane Rudity, I must say we have enough to deal with in trying to deconstruct ASCECORPS' irreally sophisticated public relations machinery while nice, probably unwitting, smart men like levee board member, former CORPS tax-paid consultant and
ASCE past president Tom Jackson cries wolf, "It's the Corps Fault," regarding their still suspect pumps --with which ASCECORPS would hold us down and waterboard us again.

This Ladder continues to demand Tom Jackson's resignation from the Levee Board due to corps conflicts of interests.
Editilla will grant'ya that he is a nice guy.
But NO NO NO! It is Not the Spin of the Storm,
but the levees leaking right now that screams ASCECORPS has not changed!
They have NOT learned a damned thing.

Their 17th Street Canal Breech "Repair" LEAKS.
Their levees in St Bernard have Newspaper in them.
Newspaper for goddess sake.
Paper Mache.
They bloody stuffed NEWSPAPER in a flood wall!
~~I want that fakir's name!
They dangerously miscalculated in Gentilly Woods.
They continue to fuck'truple funding estimates like, bumping the price of these pumps up to a BILLION dollars or the Morganza Levee System up to $12 BILLION --that is with a" B" folks...that is this many zeros: 000,000,000,000. Quiche Capiche? Oh! Now they can complain about "Funding", eh? Want a cool number for the Corps? Try how many Tons of water this passing Tropical Storm Fay dropped on Florida.
Here are some water volume comparisons
for the next time you hear of rainfall amounts in the 8-12 inch range. That is, in cubic inches:

1 gallon = 4 quarts = 8 pints = 128 fluid ounces
= 231 cubic inches

1 liter = 0.2642 gallons = 1.0568 quart
= 61.02 cubic inches

1 million gallons = 3.069 acre-feet
= 133,685.64 cubic feet
62.416 pounds per cubic foot at 32°F
61.998 pounds per cubic foot at 100°F
8.33 pounds/gallon, 0.036 pounds/cubic inch
Density: 1 gram per cubic centimeter (cc) at 39.2°F,
0.95865 gram per cc at 212°F
We cannot afford the benefit of doubt here, and if we give these crooked bastards even a thimbleful of it they will flood the city again, a thimbleful at a time.

The US Army Corps of Engineers,
as they launch yet more deadly spin'filtration,

is Repeating Deadly Levee Mistakes
while We The Tax-Paying People remain Not Safe and Still Vulnerable as we do our best to recover from a growing list of their Deadly Mistakes ~Sinn Féin.
Failed Engineering gets no 2nd Chances.
Failed Engineering gets only 2nd Lines.

Pay close attention to The Man behind your levees!

Full-scale photo installation brings the wreckage of Katrina back to Nashville
Thousands of photos have captured the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina after it hit New Orleans.
But Immersion, a photographic installation that opens at the Parthenon on Wednesday, doesn't just depict scenes from what creator William Rosen calls
"The Great Corps of Engineers Flood of 2005."

Subtitled "A Katrina Room," Rosen's photos bring the wreckage back to life through a life-size recreation of what he found a month after he returned to the home that he, his wife Eddy and their dog Sidney evacuated prior to the storm.
"If the images overwhelm the visitor, if when people go through they are psychologically or emotionally or physically upset, then the exhibit will have been a success," said the fourth generation New Orleanian, an attorney who now makes his home in Franklin.
