Another day in paradise

Morganza Floodway flow underestimated; several bays closed to adapt
After learning it had incorrectly estimated the flow of Mississippi River water through the Morganza Floodway structure, the Army Corps of Engineers on Tuesday and Wednesday closed three of the structure’s bays, slightly reducing the gush of floodwater into the Atchafalaya River Basin.
Something about that phrase, "incorrectly estimated the flow of the Mississippi River water through the Morganza" that makes the ears perk up.

Also this.

New Orleans criminal court files retrieved from landfill

Because... sure.
