It was all because govt officials were invested in mobile homes and porto potties, cleary they wanted to take over those industries in the region. There are even rumors that Houston wanted to hire more police and had to have an increase in crime so they helped with the entire thing in order to get NO residents to move there.

testify!

Al, you can't HANDLE the truth!

Besides, floods are natural, levees are made by evil men.

Yeah, could have been worse, we might have started a thread dedicating songs to a flood.

I saw Clarence at a blues festival last year, and he was fantastic live.

Something that might be of interest to those who are interested in "misdirection," "audience control," or "mentalism:"

There is a song that Mr Brown used to play, it was in the form of a dialogue between a man and a woman. He played the sounds of their voices on his guitar, while he mouthed the words silently.

If you watched his mouth while you listened to the playing, you really thought you were hearing the words being enunciated. But it was only happening in your mind. If you closed you eyes, you could hear that the only sounds were the glissandi that he was playing.

So he was really creating something that took place in your mind.

Katrina hit Mississippi dude....then some levi's broke down and caused a flood in New Orleans, twas the flood not the hurricane that caused the problems.

Kinda sorta true, the levee was breached and failed due to the storm surge from the hurricane. Like Mississippi, who took a major hit, New Orleans also suffered from the wind damage as well. My sister's house in Biloxi was knocked off its foundation and the bricks and household goods were never found. My father's house in New Orleans had part of the roof removed and three huge oaks up rooted with one falling over onto a neighbor's house. So, saying that New Orleans was only damaged by a failed levee is false.

Hurricane Gustave was the one that tore Baton Rouge a new one. Good thing my wife and I live in Athens, Georgia becuase, our old house in Baton Rouge was leveled.

Peace and Godspeed.
Peace

Some of us know that Dread, we just be tormenting those that think only New Orleans was hit and it was the evil hurrican that caused the problem. I was scared of visiting New Orleans when I lived in Georgia cuz I didn't like being below the water line.

Kinda sorta sorry you got shot. Being a New Orleans native, I come out with both guns blasting because to many people run their mouths about things they know nothing about, especially when they live a couple thousand miles away. I have heard too many people say, it was just a flood. Well, the water never got as high as the Super Dome roof let alone the top floor of my dad's house or many of the other buildings in New Orleans that were mowed down due to high winds. And it really pains me to see Iraq getting money to re-build when parts of New Orleans still look like they were at ground-zero when the said "nuclear bomb" you mentioned went off.

Then to make matters the worse there are those that are still fighting the insurance companies with no relief in sight. My dad's house was repaired with money from our own pockets, we're still waiting for the insurance to pay off, two years after my dad's death. My sister is still waiting for some of her insurance money. Her car insurance isn't paying for her van since, like many who lived on the beach, had their cars washed out to sea.

Peace and Godspeed.
Peace
