More from the Corpse? Not ready for duty, sir.

Two floodgates might not be ready:
"Two of three floodgates designed to keep storm surge from blowing out floodwalls along drainage canals probably won’t be finished by the start of hurricane season, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers official said Thursday.

Col. Lewis Setliff, commander of the Task Force Guardian levee rebuilding effort, said the gate on Orleans Avenue Canal should be completed by June 1. But it appears the gates and pumps for the 17th Street and London Avenue canals might take longer, he said at a meeting Thursday in New Orleans."
