Levee Repair Costs Triple

The Bush administration said yesterday that the cost of rebuilding New Orleans's levees to federal standards has nearly tripled to $10 billion and that there may not be enough money to fully protect the entire region.

Shocking, isn't it. Who'd a thunk. And that about settles it; take the cash and relocate the entire population once and for all. Instead of paying through the nose to live in such a desireable long as it doesn't rain hard, of course...a great many New Orlinians are paid to live there and enough is enough. If your home is uninhabitable then uninhabit. Especially if it's on our dime.
