Dear Michel and Chance:

If one of those 1500 people who died during the flooding that according 
to independent and highly qualified experts on levees and now according 
to a federal judge was caused by Corps of Engineers negligence, would 
you still say the same thing as you say here in a very angry tone?

If the body of a victim of this flooding which was floating in the dirty 
flood waters of Ward 9 as we saw in horror on our TV screens was , God 
forbid the body of one of your family members or other loved ones, would 
you still say the things that you are saying in your post in defense of 
these irresponsible engineers?

Please think about it when you are gathering around the table this 
Thanksgiving.

Thank you

Regards.

      .......  Lets all blame the federal government for everything, 
then WE THE PEOPLE are not responsible for anything.  The Corp of 
Engineers are the same as any government agency. They had requested 
funding to work on the levees but the tax payers did not want to pony up 
the money.  WE THE PEOPLE do not want to pay more taxes but we want the 
government to take care of us in all things.

      ...........
