I was always obsessed with New Orleans, even when I lived there. I am not sure how I live anywhere else. Three years ago today, Katrina made landfall in Louisiana. The effects of the hurricane were bad to be sure, but the negligence of the Army Corps of Engineers caused widespread flooding and the death of hundreds. They have not yet been held accountable for this. I will still remember New Orleans as it was, and I will hope for a better future. I will love New Orleans no matter what she looks like. But I will always hate the Army Corps of Engineers for what they have not done.
