More on why we shouldn't rebuild

I take it most of you saw some of the destruction Rita caused the South this weekend. I found some perfect "after" pictures which illustrates the stupidity in which developers build, people buy and the government supports on land that SHOULD NOT BE OCCUPIED. Take a look at these barrier islands. Their natural purpose is to help filter water, provide sanctuary for young wildlife and also buffer the impact of storms. Well, looks like some people got a lesson in reality. What burns my ass, though, is that you can bet on two things: the gov't is going to give these homeowners flood insurance checks and they are going to allow these places to be rebuilt. Stupid. Let's hope for some sanity in this situation.
