    Very suspect.

    Leave it to a New York or London rag to follow up more closely. I'm sure they will

    There was also a story going around about how a barge came loose and hit the levee. As the story goes, the barge was part of a bridge repair - to make the bridge safe in hurricanes. And that supposedly proves that the government was spending money on hurricane safety, and that investment in a stronger levee woudn't have made a difference. And Bush is still infallable and god-like.

    Except... there were two other levee breaks as well.

    The explosives story doesn't make much sense. Terrorists generally seek publicity. And if somebody wanted to hide the act, they would have blown it up during the height of the storm.

    With the number of people in the government working to spin the politics their way and deflect blame, I don't believe either of these stories.

    Generally, the simplest story is the one that is true. A big storm arrived. It weakened old, poorly maintained levees. The city flooded. The response was slow and poorly organized. Hundreds of thousands are homeless. Rebuilding will be costly and take many years.

    I do not want the levee's rebuilt. The Levees are the prime cause of the city sinking and the barrier island protection eroding. We need the silt...

    Rebuilding the levee's will cause the city to sink faster.

    Explosives: could be from OLD maintenance work. Let the press do its homework
