Saturday, February 11, 2006Their Levees vs. Our Levees
Here's how the British hold back the waters from flooding London:

advanced nation on earth...USA!!!!!!
After looking at these pictures of levees in other developed countries, you know something is seriously wrong in America. There’s no excuse for what happened in New Orleans. And now that it has happened, there's no excuse for not rebuilding the city exactly the way it was. If these countries can protect their cities that are below sea level, so can the U.S.
