I blame the backward locals in NYC. Or to borrow a paragraph from Varg:
Well, I’m blaming it on the backwards political process whose responsibility it was to oversee
those leveescity infrastructure. And that process starts at the voters and moves on up through Washington. They are ALL to blame. And the longer you lived (t)here and did nothing during the years leading up to Katrinathis dangerous manifestation of urban decay, the more you are to blame for sitting back and lamenting that “things are never going to change” and not doing a enough to protect your homes from Lake Ponchartrainpublic from exploding streets.
