Let's replace all the levees with cat litter

No reason not to. Nobody's drowned in a flood because cat litter failed to protect them yet, right?
Orleans Parish Civil District Court Judge Ethel Julien on Wednesday stymied an effort by three of the city’s largest employee associations seeking to block key provisions of Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s Great Place to Work Initiative from taking effect. Julien, who denied a temporary injunction against the city, said that the lawsuit was premature because no city employees had yet been harmed by Landrieu’s overhaul to city personnel rules.

Judicial ripeness: a claim is not ripe for adjudication if it rests upon contingent future
events that may not occur as anticipated, or indeed may not occur at all. In other words, a claim is not ripe until someone has actually been injured, and that claim will be dismissed. Any first year law student knows this.
