I think I heard that either N.O. is still sinking or the mighty River sediment is building higher.  Does anyone know? 


Are they rebuilding in the 9th Ward?  As we used to say in Florida “ I’ve got some low land for a low price!”

"Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say 'what should be the reward of such sacrifices?' ... If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!"

--Samuel Adams
