"After $1.7 billion worth of work on a patchwork of levees, pumps,
flood walls, canals and floodgates, New Orleans as a whole remains alarmingly
vulnerable to another Katrina-like catastrophe, according to scientists and
engineers who have studied the improvements and residents, politicians and
watchdogs who have spoken to ABC News."
Is it just me, or is New Orleans built on what amounts to a giant sandbar? Of course it isn't safe. When you get done making New Orleans safe from flooding, you can make Kansas safe from tornadoes or Los Angelas safe from Earthquakes.
