~Editilla Goes Advomercenary~ Is this the next Corps PR Hack, this one for the Vicksburg District? The Corps has Ruled this District all the way to the headwaters of the Sunflower River, sooo why don't their levees rate with FEMA? Huh? I mean, we cut our teeth on the Corps Lower Sunflower River Chicanery, I can't believe their extensive all dominating levee/dredging work there doesn't rate with FEMA! Apparently this Public Relations firm agrees, but probably from a different angle --the stakeholder! Who it this PR firm's Stakeholder?
Doesn't look like it's the MS Tax Payer. More later.
We're still waiting to see who gets the next PR contract out of the Corps NO District, after Optimal Process Partners' $5 Million contract ends this September. They have proven themselves to be such Haintish Boids, we can't imagine their bungling another $5 Million they way they have this last contract: all those meaningless, ineffectual "public meetings", the slick website that still operates like a mid evil torture room, that ridiculous work on the nola.com comments sections... OPP were complete losers in PR terms. Absolute PR Losers. But they did waste our tax-paid time and served to distract the public attention away from the Corps foibles this past 3 years. So who's next? OPP Again? HA!
