Shearer on trusting the Corpse

The Blog | Harry Shearer: Reasons to Trust the Corps, Continued | The Huffington Post:
"Today's entry in the surprise-a-week derby from the US Army Corps of Engineers -- the people who last week admitted blame for faulty design and construction of the levees and floodwalls that breached in New Orleans, and are now engaged in fixing the very same 'system' -- is that the promised pumps, which would substitute for the city's own huge pumps which would be sidelined if the Corps-built floodgates had to be closed in event of a storm surge, won't be arriving -- no, not on time, that promise was broken weeks ago -- won't be arriving on the new, later schedule, either."
