Our hearts go out to everyone on the Gulf Coast affected by Hurricane Katrina, the victims of which are in a pickle of imaginable size. The biggest pickle of all, however, may be reserved for those responsible for keeping New Orleans dry. By all accounts, everyone expected New Orleans to drown at some point...but will heads roll when they look at what could have been done to prevent such catastrophe?
P.S. With Venice sinking, perhaps we should just make New Orleans the new city of gondolas.
