Priorities

September 1, 2008

Hopefully, Gustav will turn out to be just a little rain, and life will proceed as usual. But this report says that it might not be that easy: “FEMA officials said the surge from Hurricane Gustav will likely overtop New New Orleans’ levees, even though the now-weakened Category 2 storm was expected to skirt west of the city.”

Now, before everyone starts screaming from the mountain tops that we need more taxes and we need to get our priorities in line, check out Edward Morrisey’s blog post from a year ago, which describes what our government spent money on after the St. Anthony Bridge in Minneapolis collapsed. Hint – it wasn’t on infrastructure.
