Be sure to read Scout Prime's post about people who should know better.

Thursday at Tulane:
• Workshop. "Dirty South: Environmental Issues Facing New Orleans and Southeast Louisiana." Panelists include Times-Picayune journalist Bob Marshall and Cyn Sarthou, director of the Gulf Restoration Network. Free and open to the public. Info: 504-862-3363. 4–5:30 p.m. Anna E. Many Lounge, Newcomb Center for Research on Women.

Don't know if I'll be able to get off early to attend, but I'll try. For more info.

I'm glad to see the Bush Brothers get blasted for cronyism, but somebody should compliment the ACoE for the ingenuity of the Nathan Forrest/Erwin Rummel/Beau Geste approach to military engineering. Give credit where credit's due. More seriously, I'm reminded of something that self-described "Reagan conservative" Paul Craig Roberts wrote more than eighteen months ago:
Chalk up the city of New Orleans as a cost of Bush's Iraq war.
--- snip (big snip) ---
What we have is a Republican war for oil company profits while New Orleans sinks beneath the waters.

For the record, I'm not sure about the importance oil company profits as motive for the Iraq war. Greed can make people stupid, but it takes a William Kristol sized ego to come up with something that stupid.

That's a great quote.

For some time now I've believed that the linkage of LA/N.O. to the war in Iraq is a potent one.
