Defective pumps in NOLA

Corps placed faulty pumps in New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS – The Army Corps of Engineers, rushing to meet President Bush’s promise to protect New Orleans by the start of the 2006 hurricane season, installed defective flood-control pumps last year despite warnings from its own expert that the equipment would fail during a storm, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.

Damn ingrates should be glad they got any pumps at all. Why should us hard workin’ ‘mericans pay because the people in New Orleans can’t get out of the rain?

Oh, sorry. I thought I was on Fox for a moment there. Won’t happen again.
