The only failure in the Aug. 30 front-page article on Katrina and New Orleans (" 'Government has failed all of us' ") is the failure to build the levees properly when the New Orleans government had the money years ago. Millions of dollars were given but frittered away on other projects or pockets.
The only government that has failed them is their own city government. I wish that was reported as much as the Bush-bashing we hear.
