Mother Revolution

Some guy predicted this. New Orleans sits in a bowl between a gulf, a river and a lake. Well, the bowl is full.

I can’t stand the footage of the old dying people who have suddenly jumped to the front of the line to meet death. It reminds me of how forgotten they already are and how America’s underbelly is completely exposed because of it.

This whole debacle is revealing the weakest links in the healthcare system, the emergency response system, the military, the welfare system, and for that matter, the civic engineering system. I don’t even know if that’s the right word for the whole levee deal.

I can’t get that Led Zeppelin song out of my head. When the levee breaks, got no place to stay. Ain’t that the truth, Mr. Plant.
