|From 2Millionth Web Log|
Missed this article from the other day about the boom-gone-bust in a Florida exurb until I came across it via several of the big blogs (the actual link is from here.)
I was struck at how the picture above resembled large swaths of the Lower 9th Ward post-flood...and the article notes the similarities are more than visual (crime problems, poverty, lack of work, etc.) And you can thank the same Bush administration--they mismanaged the response to the flood in 2005, and they blew up the economy on their way out the door.
Well, hope you enjoyed the entertainment/diversion.
