city of refuge“And they very likely did not know that this exact scenario had been predicted in detail a year before Hurricane Katrina in a computer simulation dubbed “Hurricane Pam,” conducted by Louisiana State University, nor that the study’s conclusions and recommendations had been shrugged off by most of the officials who should have been listening, nor that the federal finding to implement the study’s recommendations was cut off by President George W. Bush, who needed the money for other things.  And so they couldn’t have known exactly how despicable  lie it was when the president told the news media later that week that nobody could have predicted the levee breaks.”

Usually I open my books basically at random to a part of the book I have not yet read so that the teaser is a teaser for me as well, but I have marked so many passages that spoke to me over the past 2 days I’ve been reading this book that I just had to pick one of them as my teaser today.  My review of this book will go up next Monday but so far I’m highly recommending it.
