There are rumors going around inside the Astrodome that the 17th St. levee was bombed by the Army Corps of Engineers in order to save more valuable real estate in the French Quarter, etc. This accusation is completely unfounded and preposterous - there's no way the government had its shit together enough to pull off something like that.

Also, it's really a relief to learn that nary a high-ranking official at FEMA had ANY disaster management experience. It would be so embarrassing if this was the best they could do after a lifelong career in emergency management. As it is, there's no doubt they're doing "a heck of a job," though I don't think it's in quite the way Bush meant.
