All You Need To Know About New Orleans
She is one of the greatest American cities, leave alone a world treasure. If the Dutch have enough technological capability and national pride to save a large portion of their country that is below sea level from being drowned or chiseled away by the North Sea each year, we had better find within our patriotic American selves a way how. If our response to any and all tropical weather events is pointing at negative elevation numbers with a smug “You can’t fool Mother Nature,” please let’s go live in caves without clothing, electricity, running water and temperature control. Obviously we have successfully averted Nature’s gaze or we would never have left those hovels to some day reach deep into our earth for fuel or to put a man on the moon.
More than Hurricane Isaac, I want the media to leave New Orleans the hell alone. You didn’t help seven years ago, you’re not helping today.
