NYTimes Op/Ed - Katrina's Assault on Washington

"There are dozens of questions Americans will demand to have answered once this emergency has passed. If the Homeland Security Department was so ill prepared for a natural disaster that everyone knew was coming, how is it equipped to handle other kinds of crises? Has the war in Iraq drained the nation of resources that it needs for things like flood prevention? Is the National Guard ready to handle a disaster that might be even worse, like a biological or nuclear attack?"

Speaking of questions that need to be answered, as one of the only people today whose house is still under water in JP, why is it we build a city under sea level, in an area prone to water related disasters, and surrounded by water on all sides, and put in pumps that can't pump when they get wet?
