Harry Shearer: Perpetuation of THE Myth

From the post:

It's now embedded as MSM wisdom the notion that what happened to New Orleans almost a year ago was a hit from a hurricane, as opposed to the fact: that what almost destroyed the city was a set of levee breaches caused by the design and construction flaws of the levees and floodwalls, courtesy of the US Army Corps of Engineers.

Yep--dead right. Read the rest of the post. Mr. Shearer continues to relentlessly champion the cause of New Orleans. My thanks to Derek Smalls himself.
