“Wealthy neighborhoods remained intact due to their highly sophisticated levee systems…”
Yikes Mr. Epstein! Thanks for volunteering, but did you sleep through your visit to New Orleans? This statement goes beyond inaccuracy and dives headfirst into fantasy. I’m one of those who lived in a rich neighborhood. After the storm passed and the federal, not-so-sophisticated levee failed, my rich father and I got into our boat and spent a couple days helping our rich neighbors out of the 9 feet of water that destroyed our rich homes.
The failure of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ levees was not unique to the Ninth Ward.
