America's Frat Basement
It doesn't surprise me what's going on in New Orleans. There's so much incompetence and dereliction of duty going on there. Seriously, we shouldn't be surprised that this chaos is going in that city. New Orleans has been America's party destination for a long time. When have people been known to treat their party hangouts with respect? I seem to recall lots of broken glass, busted sheetrock walls, and floors flooded with mung at the various places known to host a party. Why should New Orleans be any different? The lack of responsibility to the community - by both the looters, helpless sorts, and whining do-nothing city officials is to be expected in a town that marks its accomplishments by the count of beads and breasts. I have no doubt that city officials have concerned themselves more with the business of making sure $2 Hurricanes flow on Bourbon Street rather than worry about the prospect of Bourbon Street flowing during a hurricane. I don't think I'm off the mark in thinking that beyond the Superdome, French Quarter, and the Convention center - and the chain of hotels that connects these all together - these officials didn't give a rat's ass about the levies, disaster plan, or what-if disaster scenarios. Maybe next Mardis Gras, when these clowns get around to designing their parade floats, they'll actually build that attribute into their mobile displays. It might help them pull through the next time the wind and waves pick up....
