Library Dust has this post relating Katrina to the Great 1927 Flood.
I was taken aback because I can’t seem to get Randy Newman’s “Louisiana 1927” from his Good Old Boys tribute to the South out of my head. The song is about the 1927 flood. “Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline”: That doesn’t sound so bad right now.
I wonder whether a politician with the stature of the Kingfish is what’s needed at this point?
