Titanic, Challenger, New Orleans.

What do they all have in common?
Newhouse News: "Experts say the New Orleans flood of 2005 should join the space shuttle explosions and the sinking of the Titanic on history's ill-fated list of disasters attributable to human mistakes.

The evidence points to critical failures in design and construction, as well as a lack of project oversight and responsibility that allowed small problems to metastasize into fatal errors. Twisted lines of authority led to cursory inspections, communications snafus and even confusion over such basic information as wall dimensions."
