Justice

Few American citizens would like to see the Federal Government fail.  But, on August 29, 2005 Hurricane Katrina – only a category two or three hurricane by the time it hit the city of New Orleans – caused shoddily constructed levees built by the Army Corps of Engineers to break.

Thousands were killed, and thousands misplaced and traumatized in one of the biggest natural, and now so decided by U.S. District Judge Stanwood Duval, man-made disasters in U.S. history.

While this is far from justice served for the thousands whose lives were forever changed by a disaster that could have been averted, this judgment hopefully will hold those whom we thought could never be sued to account.  While it’s a small victory, it is a victory nonetheless.  This is a good day.
