For anyone who wonders why New Orleanians worry about what the Corps of Engineers is doing in the "rebuilding" of the levee-floodwall system -- now renamed the Hurricane and Storm Damage Risk Reduction System -- AP's Cain Burdeau gets the money quote of the year:

"On the East Bank, they had a complete system that failed. On the West
Bank, we didn't have a complete system to fail," said Jerry Spohrer, a
levee manager on the West Bank.

Yeah, you're right.
