I hope you caught Garland Robinette's Show today which featured local blogger, activist, engineer, Matt McBride. I can't begin to tell you how sobering the interview was. Matt was a very focused and impressive speaker and what he had to say was a slap in the face.
We're not in good shape folks. According to Matt our situation is so perilous at the moment that a "heavy rainfall" could cause another levee breach. He claimed that on Dec. 30 of '06 that nearly happened.
Can you imagine what the consequences would be? All the development that's been done in the low lying areas like Broadmoor, Lakeview, The East could all potentially be wiped out again in a heavy rainfall. What's worse is there would be no evacuation notice as in a hurricane...we would just get flooded and flooded quick.
All I can say is read what Matt is telling us ....If it's true, ACE is lying to us and the country about our future and their efforts to ensure it. Why? Lucrative contracts, Washington politics, corruption and chronyism. If McBride is right....we better start planning another march. We have a much bigger threat at hand than the crime problem.
