You and I, federal taxpayers, had paid to flood New Orleans….

Mr. Burns, Smithers and Ned Flanders (aka, Harry Shearer, NOLA resident)

This report is dedicated to the people of the greater New Orleans region;
to those that perished, to those that lost friends and loved ones,
and to those that lost their homes, their businesses, their place of work,
and their community.

New Orleans has now been flooded by hurricanes six times over the past century: in 1915, 1940, 1947, 1965, 1969 and 2005.

It must be our goal that it not be allowed to happen again.

  1. Misty – always makes me think of Play Misty for Me, remember that one with Clint Eastwood? Well, that killed any cuddly for me, lol.

    I immediately thought of Going Steady in the Sixties – Happy Together – since that was the last time I actually “cuddled” unless you count my dog, hehe.
