Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more,
Or close the wall up with our English dead!
Let's just switch that to our New Orleans' dead.
Today's announcement by the Corps of Engineers that the floodgates and pumps won't be ready by June 1 as promised, surprises no one.
We've all pretty much expected this.
But you gotta love the quote from "Col. Lewis Setliff III, chief of the corps' Task Force Guardian team overseeing repairs to all sections of the hurricane protection system damaged last season by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita."
"Yes, it means we will have diminished pump capacity from already diminished pump capacity, and I know that scares people," Setliff said.
Gee, ya think?
Hey, Colonel? How goes it in St. Bernard?
