It's like playing with really pricy Legos

As I'm reading the weather reports of Gustav growing to a category 3 hurricane, I can't help but wonder if New Orleans is going to get flattened again. It just seems ridiculous to me to keep putting money into a place that is below sea level. God keeps knocking it down and we'll keep paying to build it back up again. Sometimes I think it might be a blessing if mother nature just wipes the place out altogether and maybe keeps it underwater this time. It's nice to sing kumaya and we will overcome, but there are just times when it's the better part of valor to admit defeat. Trying to keep a piece of land dry when it's in the middle of a below sea level swamp is just futility given the current climactic situation. Sea level is only going to rise and flooding is only going to become more common.
