Re: Katrina was not a natural catastrophe but a man-made one

Professor Astaneh:
 
You are obviously long overdue for your reality check.  Please repeat after me:
 
1)  "Hurricane Katrina flooded New Orleans."
 
2)  "Terrorists destroyed the WTC towers."
 
The facts are what the facts are, whether the good people in New Orleans and Berkeley like it or not. 
 
Now that the facts are clear, it might also be a good time to stop mindlessly bashing ASCE, the USACE, and Caltrans.  Your endless cheap shots have no effect except to make you look like a malcontent idiot.
