Army Corps works to rebuild reputation, capitalize on flooding ~John Snell
~"The main basin of the city would get some flooding," said Sandy Rosenthal, founder of the watchdog group, Levees.org. However, Rosenthal believes it would be "nothing like was seen during Katrina." Rosenthal takes issue with the public relations campaign, including her group's discovery last year of a lucrative Corps contract to pay an outsider P.R. firm $5 million over 3 years. "The idea of spending our taxpayer money for the Corps of Engineers to make itself look good after a spectacular failure before the whole world feels like a punch in the stomach," Rosenthal said.
