Thank you all you wonderful folks at Gambit Weekly!
I love you Drew Brees!
Thank you Jeremy Alford.
I was present for that City Council meeting on December 9 and I challenged Col Sinkler on his statements that the outfall canals were "out of the system." On camera, and before the Council, I politely reminded the Colonel that the outfall canals are indeed part of the Hurricane Protection System via the Energy and Appropriations Act of 1992. And unless the law has changed, the outfall canals are still part of the federal flood protection, even if, as flood protection, they are "inferior," I said.
Levees.org agrees with Gambit that "...New Orleanians should not have to take ownership of an inferior federal product...."
And the Corps which enjoys plenty of popularity on Capital Hill should march back there and request funding for Option 2.
