    The new mayor of New Orleans claimed this morning that Katrina was a man-made disaster on Meet The Depressed.

    Mayor Mitch Landrieu, brother to US Sen. Mary Landrieu shamelessly claimed this morning that Katrina was a man-made disaster. I know this is quite a stretch but he honestly believes this. He repeated it several times because he claims that the US government built the levees that broke and so they're responsible.

    The force of the storm nearly obliterated the Chandeleur Islands.....how the hell does he expect man-made levees to stand up to such a storm?

    Anyone who lives in the state realizes that the Landrieu family owns the state and I see this as their opportunity to sit in front of the cameras on national television and beg for more cash.

    Sen. Mary Landrieu is adept at finagling cash out of the federal government for her vote. It cost taxpayers millions to get it last year in a brilliant maneuver known as the Louisiana Purchase.

    For New Orleans and several parishes in LA it was a man made disaster. Years of coastal abuse, faulty levees, rerouting the Mississippi, and a tendency to not take storms as seriously as they can be are all faults of mankind.

    New Orleans itself would have been fine if the levee hadn't broken.

    Like Ravi stated, had they not messed with "Mother Nature" then chances are descent that this could have been avoided and don't build down in a bowl, that area that was flooded needs to be bought and turned into wetlands,imo.

    Meet the Depressed this morning is like watching the Jerry Lewis telethon.

    But he insisted on blaming the feds.

    It's not the feds fault they keep rebuilding beneath sea-level. They can't blame themselves.

    It's just an attack on the federal government because that's where the money is coming from.
