Others have already commented on this Kevin Drum post about fading interest in Katrina Reconstruction. Not much to add, but this comment caught my eye:

Given what we now know about that city; its below sea level environment, the risky and costly dikes, and that we now hear the coast there is sinking and NOLA will be flooded within 50-75 years anyway, I say to close it down gracefully.

"NOLA will be flooded within 50-75 years anyway," It takes a special talent for dissembling to take a possible projection of what could happen ceteris paribus and assert that it's an inevitable outcome. I assumed anyone who posted misleading comments under the name of the Harvey Korman character in Blazing Saddles must have his own blog, so I clicked to see. Apparently he doesn't, but his email address ended in

Since it was 5:35 on a Saturday, he probably wasn't posting on taxpayer time and it's certainly not important. Yet somehow I find it oddly comforting that the executive office has such dedicated staffers that they spread half-truths on their own time.
