Preparing the target

Getting ready for the next Katrina:

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The leader of the city's effort to recover from Hurricane Katrina unveiled a $1.1 billion plan Thursday aimed at jump-starting the sluggish revitalization work.

The plan focuses on 17 zones throughout the city, from busy Canal Street to the hard-hit Lower 9th Ward, city recovery director Ed Blakely said.

Rebuilding a major city below sea level that was devastated because it was below sea level. What a country.

OK...we empty all the landfills...transport it all to the Crescent City...raise them UP TO sea level...problem solved!

(plus, the rest of us have a lot more room to keep om dumping)

Or if they want to "revitzalize" their downtown, Hardball Capital could ALWAYS put a baseball stadium complex there!
