Good Corps / Bad Corps
One the one hand, the Corps wants to be able to inspect levees while the river water is high. This need threatens the river parish bonfires. Maybe I'm a Scrooge, but levees seem pretty important to me, so on the face of it I'm glad the Corps is looking out for us.
On the other hand, the state says the Corps has been wasting precious river silt as they dredge. If true, this is the kind of almost criminal negligence that must be highlighted by all of us as often and as loudly as possible.
