200lb log debris found in West Bank levees, Corps of Engineers plays dumb
~This piece of wood, about 3 feet by 2 feet, was removed from the levee under construction between the new Westwego Pumping Station and Orleans Village.
“If they’ve got a 200-pound log buried in that levee, it makes you wonder what else is buried there,” said Giuseppe Miserendino, the levee authority’s regional director. “How does your quality-control person miss something that big? What else didn’t they catch?”

~“The real tragedy of this flood is that it isn't getting sediment to some of these areas that sorely need it,” said Phillip Turnipseed, director of the U.S. Geological Survey's National Wetlands Research Center, which published the satellite photos of the flood. “Terrebonne, Lafourche, Barataria, the Breton Sound — you're all being left out.”

~Editilla Ruminellas~5 blocks from my house, this is an WPA-built outdoor amphitheater that we saved from demolition back in the '90s. I directed 8 Earth Day Festivals here in the heart of Memphis. It is the prettiest place in the city, a sacred space where I laid my heart for safe keeping.
