I'm so pissed off about this that I can't even think straight. I heard about it on the radio today, but until I saw the pictures, I couldn't comprehend.
"Hey, where should we build our town?"
"Oh, how about where two major rivers come together?"
I can't believe this. I realize that if the town would've flooded, people would've lost homes and jobs. These farmers are losing an entire year of income. They can receive crop insurance if they had it, and can get loans to rebuild.
"Hey, didn't we build the levees to protect the farmers and their land from being flooded?""Yeah. Fuck 'em."
