When the levees broke

One year ago today Katrina came to New Orleans. As I type this Ernesto is bearing down on Haiti. By the time it steamrolls over that sad battered island and reaches the American Gulf coast it may have gathered enough power to be a Category Three hurricane just like Katrina.

Will George W. Bush say nobody could have predicted it?

The American Society of Civil Engineers highlights here what the ideological obsession with making government as small and ineffectual as possible has led to, and makes you wonder if New Orleans will ever be re-built.

But you can't bring hair gel on an airplane, doesn't that make you feel safer?
