Quick Post

Just a quick thought before sack time: Mother Nature, and a couple of other "mother-"blanks in the form of a wimpy mayor and a simpering governor, have thrown down a challenge to the engineers and other folks looking to patch the levees and get N'awlins back on her feet. They've kept the water out, until now, and they're not going to give up. My predictions: The levees are watertight (or at least enough so the pumps can keep up) in less than a week. The water will be pumped out of the city less than two weeks later. By Mardi Gras, visitors to the Quarter won't be able to tell Katrina had visited. And no, I don't think I'm being too optimistic. Remember it was supposed to take what, a year?, to clean up the World Trade Center site.
