Time to add a few more verses to "When the Levee Breaks"
The proposed 2007 budget for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has been reduced by 47% from pre-Katrina levels.
Good thing that penguins are good swimmers! As for the rest of Louisianians in the New Orleans area, I suggest it's time to start going around in wetsuits with flippers and air tanks, because you're going to need them.
Hey, America -- could you give Louisiana back to the French? Please? At least the Europeans know how to build real levees!
