- You're right, Barry.... The "racism" flag has come out in the open now and sides are being taken nationwide, but the plain fact is that it will take too many BILLIONS of $$$ to rebuild this place! And who wants to invest in a BOWL below sea level!!! If I were a Dutchman back in the 15th century I would know exactly what to do, but I'm in the middle of rotting politicians of every stripe: repubs and dems. The following part-articles by Dowd is worth including as it affects all of you and it will do so within 1 or 2 months. I'm talking about the loss of natural gas production and gasoline reserves compromised in storage and in the refineries in flooded Louisiana. Dowd knows her stuff about Louisiana and the Prez! I must leave now as the military are doing another sweep through this area looking for escaped cons. They actually are using Cobra Gunships for support and they're loaded and cocked.

"W. drove his budget-cutting Chevy to the levee, and it wasn't dry. Bye, bye, American lives. "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," he told Diane Sawyer.
"Shirt-sleeves rolled up, W. finally landed in Hell yesterday and chuckled about his wild boozing days in "the great city" of N'Awlins. He was clearly moved. "You know, I'm going to fly out of here in a minute," he said on the runway at the New Orleans International Airport, "but I want you to know that I'm not going to forget what I've seen." Out of the cameras' range, and avoided by W., was a convoy of thousands of sick and dying people, some sprawled on the floor or dumped on baggage carousels at a makeshift M*A*S*H unit inside the terminal.
"Why does this self-styled "can do" president always lapse into such lame "who could have known?" excuses.
"Who on earth could have known that Osama bin Laden wanted to attack us by flying planes into buildings? Any official who bothered to read the trellis of pre-9/11 intelligence briefs.
"Who on earth could have known that an American invasion of Iraq would spawn a brutal insurgency, terrorist recruiting boom and possible civil war? Any official who bothered to read the C.I.A.'s prewar reports.
"Who on earth could have known that New Orleans's sinking levees were at risk from a strong hurricane? Anybody who bothered to read the endless warnings over the years about the Big Easy's uneasy fishbowl.
"In June 2004, Walter Maestri, emergency management chief for Jefferson Parish, fretted to The Times-Picayune in New Orleans: "It appears that the money has been moved in the president's budget to handle homeland security and the war in Iraq, and I suppose that's the price we pay. Nobody locally is happy that the levees can't be finished, and we are doing everything we can to make the case that this is a security issue for us."
"Not only was the money depleted by the Bush folly in Iraq; 30 percent of the National Guard and about half its equipment are in Iraq.

And as we speak there are other potential hurricanes gathering so what are

In Church this morning we prayed for everyone affected by hurricane Katrina,
including a hymn which had a line "When I wanted neighbour, where were you?"
The disaster has changed the lives of everyone in that region, irrespective
of colour or creed.
Take care. Barry UK

sometimes too, but Firefox's Webdeveloper toolbar works better than
Opera's does, so I use that most of the time.

things up so the visitor can choose. Well, I guess I also need to
save your page source, so I'll do that too; it must have a place from
which to choose.
Firefox gave me a menu from the Webdeveloper toolbar from which to
choose, but that wouldn't be how a person, say, using IE, would
choose, nor one using a browser without Ff's webdeveloper toolbar. So
I'll be back again.

Thanks a million!
