Mike linked to a story on New Orleans and the constant threat of flood in that famous American city. It’s a good story with an interactive graphic that tells of how the city is actually below sea level. I remember seeing this on some PBS kids show many years ago — they have pumps that keep rainwater from filling up the basin that is the main part of the city.
Anyhow, it was this photo that made me blog the post. Maybe I’m punchy, but the perspective in this picture makes the guy on the right look like a tiny gnome. Headline: Gnomes Shore Up New Orleans Infrastructure.
Okay, maybe it’s just me. It’s Monday.Posted by James at September 13, 2004 11:28 AM
