Recriminations: Katrina

Rod Dreher has a very interesting comment on the Corner. Why weren't they better prepared? Seems like they had no excuse.

Just heard from a Louisiana source in the medical industry that New Orleans hospitals were advised after 9/11 to move their generators from the first floor to the third floor -- presumably to protect them in case terrorists dynamited the levee. Obviously, they didn't do this, which is why the hospitals are evacuating now.
