Levees in 6 months?

Hurricane season starts again in 6 months and a few days. Think they’ll have the levees rebuilt by then? These folks don’t think so.

When Kemp heard that an official at the White House had promised to fix the levees by June 1, he was puzzled.

"I think it has to do with what he means by 'fixed'," Kemp says. "Will we have structures that have grass on them that look like levees? Yeah, maybe. Will we have things we can depend on for resisting wave forces and surges of 17 or 18 feet? No, we won't."

If they’re right, should Nagin be telling people to come home?
