2. Jesus. After all NO has been through the bangers eat away at it like termites.

It's a terrible problem. Has been forever, but nowadays the ante just gets higher and higher. It could kill the city as a functioning city and turn it into a New Orleans Theme Park. The answers of course are beyond what anyone is willing to do.

And much much more.
